Tiring, isn't it how everything keeps going up in price?
Our rate hasn't gone up lately but it is still ridiculous because DH likes it at a cool 72 in here. I could easily go up a few degrees. They have raised our water rates. Our last bill was $131. The next one should be lower just because we were on vacation!
Our elec. bill last month was right at $60. We have no A/C, so I think that makes a big difference. We are getting an air conditioner today, a small one, so it will probably be a little higher next month until it cools down. Now our water bill will probably be a lot higher this next time because we just got the kids a pool (holds 900 gal). Other than that, our bills are really pretty low. We live in a low cost of living area, but because of that, the pay sucks. I guess it evens out though.
That sucks. I am dreading the winter as I know ours will raise in price as well. We pay around $400 a month in the winter! It is ridiculous!
Sorry to hear it. When I moved from my old townhouse to this new house, my utility bill tripled, it was quite a shock! I'll be looking into level pay so I won't get slammed with $300+ heating bills in the winter.

Our electric goes up more in the winter than it does during the summer.
I should look at my mother in laws bill, we don't pay it, we just pay her a flat rate every month for rent/cable/internet/electricty (we have a well for water...and we pay our other bills on our own). We are trying to buy a house this winter, so I should have some idea how much electricty is going to cost us! We will be wearing lots of sweaters and hanging out by candle light, lol.
I feel like everything is going up in price though, everything except our pay.
I just got uor electric bill today and it went up AGAIN, I was afraid it would
