As we head towards 2016, Italy's national energy authority has given the population some good news - gas and electricity bills are set to fall.

After the festive shopping season, the thought of saving a few euros on basic utilities from January will no doubt be welcomed by all.

Though we're not talking about saving an astronomical amount - the electricity bill for a typical Italian household (one that consumes 2,700 kWh a year) will drop by 1.2 percent from January 1st, while its gas bill will fall by 3.3 percent.

This means an overall saving of an average €57 a year, which the energy authority said was due to lower oil prices. Coupled with the mild winter so far, the arrival of the bills will inevitably be less dreaded.
