On the other hand, our gas bills were only $26 for the two-month period.

WOW!! My (all electric) bill has been running a little over 3 times that, per month, in a small 1-bedroom apartment!!


Our combined gas and electric bills have averaged $138/month for the past 12 months for a stand-alone 3200-sq-ft house. Chalk it up to a mild climate and cheap hydroelectric power. I expect the rates to increase as OR implements its mandate to get more of its energy from more expensive renewable sources which, oddly enough, do not include hydro.
