Has your electric bill gone up yet?

We received a letter with our bill this month informing us that there will be an increase starting next month due to the increasing costs in purchasing and maintaining power to our area. Again, this can be traced back to the fuel prices so, while we're trying to cut back on as much as we can to save money, we're going to find ourselves in the same place.

Our bill was actually less last month but that's because it's been nice weather for us here. Durning the summer and winter is when ours is highest, and then it's not too bad. We don't use gas though, total electric.

Not that I have seen yet, but I am sure by the time the next bill gets here it will have gone up. I just turned on the air conditioner last week.

No in fact it has gone down due to some changes that I made and inforced with the power consumption at my house.It dropped 40.00 from the previous month.

Yes, my electric bill has gone up this month. My water bill has gone up as well. its hard trying to find a balance in paying bills. Once you think you are getting caught up and able to save, something happens and we can't.
