Ugh. Today I received my Texaco/Shell bill AND my Washington Gas bill. My husband and I put our gas fill-ups on a gas card so that we can keep track of what we spend. A normal month would be about $225.00. My husband drives 60 miles a day, but he uses a hybrid car and gets close to 45 miles per gallon. I drive the gas guzzeler Honda Pilot, but I only drive 16 miles to and from work. I fill up every 10 days. Well, today's bill was $286.47. That's more than $50.00 higher than what I usually pay. But I did go back and forth to JMU to pick up my daughter for the weekend, which probably explains the extra $50.00 in gas, but it's also the increase as well.
The other bill, the bill to heat our home was $288.00. Last year at this time, the bill was $277.00. Now that is not that much of an increase, but our weather was so much milder this year. I cannot imagine what the bill would have been if the weather was bad!
