Well Britains Energy and Climate Change Secretary Ed Miliband knows exactly what to do about those fluctuations.
Miliband was elected Labour Member of Parliament for the South Yorkshire constituency of Doncaster North in the 2005 general election.
On 3 October 2008, Miliband was promoted to Secretary of State at the newly created Department of Energy and Climate Change.
Miliband is the son of Marion Kozak and the late Marxist theorist Ralph Miliband (son of Polish-Jewish parents from Warsaw) who fled Belgium during World War II.
Like all Cabinet members, Miliband was appointed to Her Majesty's Most Honourable Privy Council as he works in close proximity to papers of state and the monarch.
On 3 October 2008, Miliband was promoted to the cabinet with the portfolio and responsibility for the newly created government department, the Department of Energy and Climate Change as its Secretary of State after being moved in the cabinet reshuffle whereby previously he was Cabinet Office Minister.
Miliband was teacher of economics at Harvard University in 2002 while on sabbatical; and appointed chair of the Council of Economic Advisers on his return to UK.
The 36-year-old Miliband was educated at Oxford University and London School of Economics and takes up the role of minister for the voluntary sector, a role which traditionally has not seen a long tenure by previous post holders.
The government has committed the UK to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 80% by the middle of this century.
Climate Change and Energy Secretary Ed Miliband said the current 60% target would be replaced by a higher goal.
The target does not include aviation or shipping emissions - but Mr Miliband said they would "play a part" in the government's overall strategy.
A spokesman said: "It is excellent news that Ed Miliband has quickly come to the conclusion that the prepayment meter rip off is unacceptable.
Miliband is really gropeing about for something to say and, unintentially, because he's an inadequate little man, has let the cat out of the NewLabour bag.
So Miliband is reduced to admiting that Labour's sole purpose is to beat the Tories- not run the country or help the poor etc.
Sometimes you dont have to add anything to the words of a politician to show how desperately, ludicrously out of touch they are with the real world: the world that is dying as a result of the duplicity and greenwash they have been spouting ever since governments first claimed they cared a jot about the planet.
Ed Miliband has shown he is serious about addressing climate change and is far sighted enough to recognise that getting the correct target into legislation is essential.
At the minute Miliband is still prevaricating on this, suggesting that it can be addressed through the EU emissions trading scheme, but it is vital if the target in the legislation is to be meaningful that aviation and shipping emissions are included.
Ed Miliband has labelled 2009 in a New Year message, as a crucial year in British and European action to tackle climate change.
Miliband is strongly supportive of the European Union as a global economic and military power, eventually incorporating Russia, the Middle East and North Africa.
Following Tony Blair's resignation, Miliband was touted as a potential challenger to Gordon Brown for the leadership of the Labour Party.
