Why is My Gas Bill So High?

A sudden spike in your gas cost is a terrible surprise. The cause could be something as benign as the weather. In cold temperatures, gas-powered heaters have to work harder to create warmth, and people also crank up their thermostats to combat the chill. This extra gas adds up on your monthly bill.

Another reason your gas bill is looking high could be the settings on your gas-powered appliances. When your water heater is set at the highest setting, you’re programming it to heat your water extremely hot. This, of course, requires more energy than using a lower setting.

The most worrisome culprit could be a gas leak. If you’ve noticed a rotten egg smell, hissing, or other strange noises coming from a gas appliance or a patch of dying vegetation in your yard, a leaking gas line could be to blame.
