Well last month it was 115 and this month its 204. This is our third month living in this house and hoping it stays under 200.

I pay \$85 a month on balanced billing for heat and electric each. My water bill is quarterly and is usually about \$35. Our sewer and garbage is part of our taxes so I have no idea what that portion amounts to.

Electric during the summer is roughly \$300 and water is about \$100. The winter is about half of summer costs.

We pay about 125 for a 2 story 2700sq ft home in Tx. We usually keep our ac on 74, but it is a new home and has radiant barrier in the attic so that really helps. In our old house that was about 1200 sq ft with ac at 76ish the bill was double what we pay now.

Elecric averages around 220/mo. Water, sewer and garbage are included in our rent.

I said 200-300. That's averaged out over the year though! Our electric bill is around 60 dollars except for summer when it's close too 200. We fill our tank up with gas at the beginning of winter, so \$1000. We live in the sticks and have a well for our water. There is no trash or sewage either.
