    We live in a decent size apartment.  Our electric bill is usually $40 (so I voted for other).  We are now using our air conditioner though and I’m scared to see that bill.  We did block off the living room so it’s the only thing it needs to cool down.  We don’t have a gas bill.

    I voted $150 but it’s normally between $135-$145 p/month depending on our use of heat or central air. It did get up to $170 a few years ago when it was like over 100 degrees outside. Our condo is one level and approx 1100 sq. feet.

    I live in a smaller 3 bedroom house.  Our electricity is normally around 300 – 400 for three months.

    Our biggest winter bill was 900, which was a SHOCK.  We ditched the electric convection heater and put in a gas heater.  We go through around 2 bottles during winter, and gas has just gone up $40 a bottle.  Thats going to hurt us as we are just coming into winter.

    It’s usually between $100-115 each month for our electricity. We use oil heat in the winter & that’s about $600 to fill up our tank, which lasts us anywhere from 2-3 months. We also can run the house on propane for our electricity, but we only use that when the power goes out.

    I voted 125, but it’s more like 135. This is for a 1892 townhouse in an historic district. All electricity (there’s a gas connection but nothing in the house at present is connected to it). We have 2-zone HVAC, and put a programmable thermostat downstairs and saw the bill go down to 135 from 165.

    For 746 square feet, in any month but winter, it’s around $73.00. In the winter, it’s around $45.00. We only have electric.

    We live in a dulpex and our bills have been amazing!  I voted $100.  I think it has been around $50 in the summer to a little over $100 in the winter.  I think this is because our landlord had new windows installed soon after we moved in.  My last apartment was about half the space (both were in brick buildings), and my bills were about twice as much!

    Ugh..well we live in hot weather year round so our AC bill kills us. Its been as high as mid 200’s and low as 170’s. Though we do have a full size house, so Im sure if we lived in something smaller or an efficiency apt. wed be rockin!

    Ours is around $75 when you combine gas & electric (both around $30-35/each). We live in a 3 BR apartment, now, and we’ve only been living here during the winter, so I don’t know what it will be like in the summer.

    In the winter- $200, in the summer $30-50.  It is REALLY cold here!  But I suffer through the high summer temps.

    We have a 2500-square-foot house, gas heat/hot water and electric AC.  We only have a few months each year where we don’t have to run either AC or heat.  We got solar panels installed last year and that has been amazing—- we only get an electric bill 3 months out of the year. which are the hottest 3 months, and those bills are about $125-150 which is half of what they were pre-solar.

    Gas bills: $25 in the no-heat months; $150-200 in the heat-needed months.

    We live in a 400sqft studio & everything is electric, but we only pay about $40/per month.  During the summer though when it’s like over 100 [blegh!] it will probably creep up towards like $70 or so, which still isn’t bad :]
