These are the bills I received in the month of November – or in the case of auto gas, the amount of gas purchased during the month (although not necessarily used). “AAAH” stands for Average Annual American Household. The monthly numbers are simply the AAAH numbers divided by 12.
The AAAH uses 917 units per month for electricity.
My November reading of 340 kwh was…
…up 27 kwh from previous month.
…down 62.92% from the national average.
…down 13.71% from my own usage 12 months ago.
Five-Month Usage: My usage for July-November was 1,689 kwh. This is…
…down 2,319 kwh, or 61.45% from the national average
…down 795 kwh, or 32.00% from my own usage 12 months ago.
The AAAH uses 83.33 per month for household gas.
My November usage was 13.2 therms. This is down 84.16% from the national average.
Five-Month Usage: My usage for July-November was 38.7 therms. This is down 377.97 therms, or 90.71% from the national average.
The Average American uses 100 gallons of water per day. A 90% reduction would be 10 gallons of water usage per day. I get my water bill every quarter.
My November bill was for 90 days, and listed my usage for the period as 5,250 gallons. This is 3,750 gallons, or 41.67% less than the average.
The average person uses 41.67 gallons of gas per month for their car.
My November usage of 31.50 gallons is a decrease of 24.41% from the average, and an increase of 15.24 gallons from the previous month – and the largest monthly gasoline usage since I started this project.
Five-Month Usage: My usage for July through November was 125.07 gallons. This is down 83.28 gallons, or 39.97% from the national average.
This was a tough month for me for gasoline – with several trips to a hospital to drop off, visit and pick up a friend. Random trips to visit my chosen mom or friends for dinner.
All my monthly numbers are listed on the “Riot 90% Reduction Progress” page, found at the top of this site (artbystrongheart.wordpress.com).
