How expensive really is a gas bill?
I have always lived in apartments where the gas bill was included in the rent. So I get this new half of a house, the gas bill for the first month is $160. I think no big deal, its winter. I usually only keep the heat on 60 if on at all. So I get the bill in the mail for March, and its 475 freaking dollars!!!! This is almost as much as my rent. I am sure there is a billing error in there somewhere. But what the hell? We barely even turn on the heat. What would a gas bill for someone who keeps the heat at 75 degrees be? Input please.4 replies
