I live in a two bed, two bath condo, about 1300 sqft total, so not that big.
My gas bill this month is 80, electricity bill is 100, and water bill is 30… the highest yet! Last year around this time, I remember paying a lot less!
Anyways, I’m just curious to see what others are paying? (I know we all live in diff cities, and that can change the price, so I will keep that in mind)
Please provide how much you pay each month for:

I used to live in an old apartment with terrible windows and radiators, and in the winter I would pay over $400. Now I live in a 700 sq foot apartment and this month I paid $70 for gas and electric.

Electricity: it varies, last month it was $60ish
Water: $120 quarterly (includes sewer)
How big is your home: 1200 sq ft single family home, just 2 of us living in it, and I keep the heat down pretty low – at least my husband complains he’s always freezing. I keep it at 66*

1500 sq feet house in Portland, Oregon…
GAS: Mostly gas everything! $116.00 last month. I don’t even put the heat past 65
Electricity: $36.00 last month
Water: $100 month. Most of that is sewer costs. Don’t even get me started on Portland water/sewer costs. I think it’s highway robbery!

We just moved to a 3 bed 2.5 bath 1600 SQF house from a 2 bed, 1 bath 800 SQF apartment
For comparison sake to see how different things can impact your utility cost take our last month bill for each property. Keep in mind we weren’t actually LIVING in the apartment, it was vacant. They are in the same county so same amount of tax the apartment was VERY drafty and had old appliances.

We live in an apartment that is about 1000 sq ft. We don’t have gas so $0, electric is $60 and that is just due to it being winter and cold the average is about $45, we don’t pay for water. However the cable bill is not fun at all.

Apartment size: 900sqft

@weddingbee098: I live in a 3BR house, and we just got our first electricity bill a couple of days ago, which was $395 (our bills come every 3 months). We were really happy with that, as we’ve been using the ducted air conditioning a lot and we were expecting way worse. Gas bill hasn’t come yet, but I’m scared (we’ve got hot water that never runs out, and that means you could shower all day…bit of a downside for someone like me who has trouble getting out of the shower!). The homeowner pays the water bill, but if we use excess water, we will pay the difference.

@weddingbee098: I signed us up for budget billing, so you get billed the same amount every month, year round. Gas is $99/mo, electric is $120/mo, and we don’t pay for water because we have a well. Our house is a bit over 1700 sq ft not including the attached garage and finished basement. I should add that it was flipped in 2012, so everything is brand new and “energy efficient.” The only thing that wasn’t replaced were our windows, so those are a bit drafty sometimes.
ETA: 3 bedroom 3 bathroom
