I was exchanging comments with friends here after taking a quick shower (after finishing my plant-watering session) when my wife, who was cooking dinner, called out to me and said she was out of cooking gas. It was timely that I have bought an 11 kilogram tank of Petronas gas the other day at P630/tank (about $13.36 in today's exchange rate of 47.14 pesos to a dollar) so I was able to immediately replace the empty tank with a full one. A few months before, the cost of cooking gas reached as high as P890.00 per tank. The tankful of cooking gas lasted 2 months which would translate to an average daily cost of P10.50 ($0.2227). What about you? How much do you spend on cooking gas monthly?

@hereandthere Yes, that's right and sometimes people also have a way of economizing on gas usage like cooking only in the morning and at noon or only in the morning and evening. those who cook in the morning and at noon already include the food for the evening in the noontime cooking. So it will only take a short time to warm the food in the evening.

Our cooking gas lasts for more than 2 months . That's because when we cook a dish for lunch , we do it in such a way that there will still be for dinner and just reheat it at the microwave . We use the rice cooker to cook the rice and airpot for hot water .

I really do not know because our gas is piped to our house. The government will keep track on our usage, and then send the bill to us. It is together with water and electricity, so the total bill usually cost more than S$130. Sometimes it can go as high as S$180. I think that is due to hot weather, and we switch on the air-con, and use more water to shower.
