I live in southern Calif. and never use the heater - and have no air conditioning - in my home. I wear the same type of clothes all year round - don't own a coat, boots, etc. My utilities bills are quite low. You have to figure in ur total expenses for the year, doesn't depend on which area of the country u live.


 

 

 

i have an apartment in southern california......we do use a/c and we do  use heat.....depending on the weather. my s/o is cold when it gets below 60! our utlities are GENERALLY around $80 a month or so. of course right now gasoline there is about $1 a gallon above what i pay in the maryland area. overall southern california is A LOT more expensive of a place to live.

Interesting......thanks Marp.

 

I think Long Island is probably even lower.....I'm guessing the amount is a state average?


Yes, figures are based on the state's average.

The more I learn the more I realize how little I know.
Are you setting an example or being an example?

Very interesting...and I'm not really surprised at most of these figures!

In some states I think it may depend on where you live, but for the most part it's pretty accurate I believe.
