Thread Name: What do you pay for electricity?
Subject: RE: What do you pay for electricity?
My electric quote of $.055 did not include heating; that is Natural Gas. Hot water is also natural gas. Gas bill averages about $65 US per month. Electricity only, which is just the lights, is about $65 per month.

Water, heat, electricity, and sewage services average about $200 US per month. The Federal Gov't just said NO to a cap on Utilities, and the gas provider was approved a 45% increase. Last year they were awarded a 42% increase. That is an 87% increase without adding the additional percentage. My Mr., the Wage Earner, gets 2.5% wage increase per year......

House payment, plus utilities are running about 50% of the take home pay......

No wonder the Folk are revolting yet again. For whatever good it will do with the Dubya Admin.
