OK I never talk about bills/money with the majority of people I know. But I just have to know:

What the hell is everyone else's average monthly electric bill? Ours is usually about $150. Last month it was $207 which I noticed, but I figured it was a fluke or some type of one time fee or something, but we just got our bill for this month and its $224!? We Leave the air on a consistent temp (around 70), and it hasn't been particularly hot over the past month so I'm really just confused on how/why it's going up this drastically.

By the way I live in a 2 bedroom town home! I just feel like they're really getting over on me for some reason!

Is it being estimated?

Call and give them your meter reading over the phone, & see if it adjusts.

Call them. It could be because they are on a grid for electricity and because of demand in other areas, it is driving up the costs for everyone.

Wow, we were bummed when our bill hit $180 this month after running the A/C for weeks. I guess after seeing what many of you are paying I won't be so bothered by it. LOL

Mine was 279 last month, while in the winter it's about 100 so central air is what's killing it.

 Ours is right around $200 in the summer, but it also includes water, sewer and trash. In the winter when we're not running the a/c, it's closer to $150.
