house size: 3100 sq feet
Northern Utah mountain valley
Electricity: $80/ month equal payment plan (only changed when the legislature voted a rate increase.)
Gas: $90/month also equal payment plan (was down to $79/month with just husband and I.)
Garbage: $27/month (changes frequently as gas prices go up and up and up.)
Water: $20/month (doesn't change regardless of how many people live here. Its a water share.)

One bedroom apartment with cement walls- only one window and door
Electric: $30/month (don't know if your class is taking this into account, but I have a 100% green energy plan) Also- I am not home much.. I work and son goes to daycare, and we unplug everything when we are gone
Water/Sewage/Garbage: $40/month (the bill is evenly split between all apartment tenants every month so it varies, but it tends to be around this amount)
No other utilities.

-We live in an apartment complex, we get free water (also free garbage removal, free laundry on site as well)
-Electric, on average per month: $20-$30 -- we rarely turn our lights on during the day and just leave the blinds open, so this helps us save a few bucks in our situation
-Gas, on average per month: $20-$30 -- we also don't crank up our heat (it's set at about 68 degrees), if it's not a total necessity to be turning it on, we don't and just use blankets; oh, and our A/C is broken and nobody has come to fix it yet, so we haven't been able to use it -- that always helps save a buck or two
Our apartment is also only 800 square feet, so it doesn't necessarily take too much to get it lit, warm, or cooled off.

This is for a 1800-2000 sq foot house in a college town in the Midwest. I pay all the bills. My son's contribution mainly goes to his share of food and cable/phone. Personally, I'd keep the house colder in the winter, but we like the rabbit to be comfy.

Efficient windows and doors make a huge difference.

Our complex pays for the water, my guess its added to the rent. Electricity is 200-300 per two months for 2 bedroom duplex. Garbage free. Gasoline, 5.50 per gallon. Sales taxe 12 percent. Realeste, 1.2 million dollars for a 1,200 sq foot bungalow in west Vancouver" much less here in delta.
