one issue i keep hearing in all these reports is that the UK has very little storage capacity
That's what I just read too. Apparently Germany is saving/storing 20% of its yearly needed gas for the tough times, the UK a fourth of that. Apparently gave up a storage facility in 2017 and in 2018 decided against building up new storage capacity. Relying on well-working supply from abroad instead.
Probably would have worked out just fine without Brexit and covid happening at about the same time. Unlucky.

is brexit a factor in this or not?i keep hearing conflicting reports
Well, there's the big energy market that buffers it a lot on the continent. Prices are rising on the continent, but what the UK has seen has been in a league of its own.

So the remoaners are STILL on with the complete fiction that the energy price rise in the UK is due to Brexit, and crap about leaving an EU energy market, when no actual commentator is saying this. They are so delusional. STOP LYING.
