A 9% increase in oil prices and a 20% increase in gas prices pushed the Bord Gáis Energy Index up 8% in February. The combination of rising geopolitical tensions, supply constraints, rising energy demand, a weaker US Dollar and improving market confidence, resulted in the price of a barrel of Brent oil hitting an all time record in euro terms during the month. Gas prices also rose dramatically due to the severe winter weather experienced across Continental Europe. As a result, prices hit levels not seen since 2006.

The Bord Gáis Energy Index now stands at a record high for the Index of 157.
