How Much Is You Annual Spend On Gas?

Recommended Posts

With the 'average' gas bill often cited as over 1000 pounds, I wonder if this is realistic? Mine (2 bed terrace) comes in at about 200 per year....what's yours?

50 quid a month (600 quid a year) ish, went upto 80 quid a month then dropped down to 30 quid a month... really confuses me how they struggle to get an accurate estimate of usage, and suggest wild random adjustments in the DD... 4 bedroom modern townhouse

Mine is £600 pound a year as well, for a 3 bed detached. Quite surprising really I spend more on gas than I spend on fuel for the car. But yet I think more about the cost of the car.

c.£100pcm

2 bed terrace. Gas heating and cooker. Don't ask me why it's so much... we put the heating on maybe 10 days a year, and cook once a day.

PS The leccy is even more... don't get me started....

If the average is +£1,000, then why have you only got one 'bin' for this, and four bins for the sub-1,000? surely you'd need to have a similar number above and below the mean to make it look at all representative and show a decent distribution? After all, one person spending £3k per year would cancel out an awful lot of £400 per year scores.

Two-bed mainsonette with gas heating and hob, warmth helped by having a flat underneath, probably 500 quid in the last year. Have just dumped British Gas for Co-op Energy. Nearly stung last year by an estimated bill for about five times the usual quarterly amount, would have caused current account problems if we had been on direct debit.

We just fall into the £400 to £600 range, a mild winter and we're in the £200 to £400 band.

3 bed detached. Gas central heating & fire, gas for cooking. House is well insulated plus we're very careful with the heating. Probably 75% of gas consumption in Dec, Jan & Feb.
