Rising gas bill…

… and I don’t mean gasoline…

For the first time in a long time, we have to pay our own gas bill. I got our first one in the mail today. Mind you, we JUST MOVED in this past weekend (but turned on our service on April 2)…

From The Gas Company

Ok, granted the bulk of this bill is “set up charges” and “deposits,” but you can imagine how I freaked out when I saw a bill for our first 4 days (when we basically weren’t even here!) came out to almost $100?
