call and ask if the meter reader has been
estimating usage. had that happen on the
power bill, nearly doubled on us one billing,
found out the reader actually stopped and took
the reading that cycle.

Check whatever you are firing that gas with. My dad's gas bill doubled. Turned out his 30 year old hot water system was leaking. The little boiler was fine and it had a fairly new pump. Turned out his pipes were all leaking. He doesn't go down to the basement very often anymore and didn't notice the boiler running a lot. Most of the plumbing is out in the crawl spaces.

mines in the crawl space too but everything is only about 5 years old or so.i can usually hear when the hot water tank heater kicks in as well, mine has more than doubled here

It's not only gas it is electric also and I bet the other utilities are going to show a big increase...I wonder where they think we are going to get this kind of money???...Putting me up a clothesline already got the pins...KAtG

yup your right kat , they think we have an endless supply of money and keep raising things, they don,t give a damn if we eat or not long as they can get more profits.

I believe they can and maybe a call to your gas company is in order.

maybe there is a gas leak you might be unaware of. I would definitely call and have the whole system checked by the gas company.

if it were leaking i would smell it they put something in it to make it smell like rotten eggs all i got is a rotten bill.

could be an underground leak and the smell is goin ta china.

Still nothing to mess with and they don't charge ya fer the checkin.

Better safe than sorry. Do I havta e-mail yer bride on this? LOL

only would meter whats after meter. most meters when go bad under rate use. The power company has to check them according to your state laws. I do believe thet will hook another meter in line to double check. My brother in law said his doubled last month don,t knoe I have propane
