An unpleasant surprise!

I just got my gas bill and I am in shock!

For 2 months, the bill was 362 euro!

That is outrageous! I don’t have my heating on a lot either!

Maybe 2 or 3 hours a day max!

And I am not at home on the weekends, so I don’t use it from Friday afternoon until Sunday afternoon each week!

I only had 300 euro in credit, so I owe 62 euro now!

And you have to pay the balance that you owe within 14 days of the bill being issued.

So between this bill, my vet bill which I still owe money on, and now my electricity bill is also due within the next day or two, I’m screwed!

I swear I need a money tree!

Anyone feel the same way?

  1. My power bills have been running $192 to$242 a month. I have the heat on 24-7 but I ran the AC that way and the bill was never over $142. We are all getting screwed over. Money is the root of all evil when you just don’t have enough. Sending hugs.

  2. Ouch. Our heating isn’t too bad, but our daughter just had a heating bill of over $500. I think that’s about 475 Euros. She’s having trouble paying for it, we’ve helped by paying her vet bill, but we can barely afford that.

  3. In January we had our highest gas bill ever – not because we used more gas just because of price increases. We started using our fireplace as much as possible and our February bill was down 25%. It can be a lot of work to keep the fire going but we are blessed to have it as an option.

  4. We haven’t been hit by the gastronomical increases yet and will feel a 300 to 400% rise when our fixed tariff expires in September. I have been budgeting accordingly and using charts and spreadsheets taking into account the recent costs here in the UK and so far, I seem to be within target. It is criminal that the energy companies are making obscene billions in profits yet people are unable to heat their homes.

      1. I know. We had an invitation from our energy supplier to join in with their saving energy hour. I replied asking how we could possibly cut back from between 3 and 4 kwh a day which is all we use as the norm anyway. Waiting to hear……………..
