  • Down here in Oklahoma we can not live without A/C. Save money some where else. Turn off the lights.

  • I know how you feel. Our bill gets even higher during winter here.

    Answer by DesertRose75 at 6:57 PM on Jul. 30, 2010

  • Oh wow, that's high!! Our bill is for electric AND gas and it the 7 years we've lived here it has NEVER been over $200! That's $200 for gas AND electric! Our bill last month was $85. That covered our electric for the month and the gas for the month. I DO have AC, but it broke last summer and we have not had it fixed yet, so that's without the air, but then again, like I said in the 7 years we've been here I've never have had a bill be over $200 for electricity and gas.

  • We don't have air conditioning, just fans. I was flipping out at a $95 electric bill
