OK, the cold has disappeared here in St. Louis and the warmer weather has landed. For the last few weeks it has fluctuated between 30 and 70 degrees. About a month ago I turned off the heat and braved the cold nights and days. It paid off! My most recent gas bill shows only 17.4 therms – down from 81.9 therms last month. HUGE drop. So, here are the stats:
The Average American Household uses 83.33 per month for household gas when taking the annual amount and dividing by 12.
April: 17.4 therms. This is down 79.12% from the national average, down 64.5 therms from the previous month and 38.2 therms less than my own usage last year.
Ten-Month Usage: My usage for July-April was 404.0 therms. This is down 429.3 therms, or 51.52% from the national average. This puts me at an average monthly therm usage of 40.40.
God I love Spring!
