Do California people know know just how ridiculously expensive it is to live there? My GF's sister just got a PG&E electric bill for $1300. Is that normal for there? What do electric/gas expenses run for you California folks? Here in Michigan, my electric bill is $180/mo, gas is $60/mo. My water is pumped out of the well, so no expense there except for the electricity. I keep my thermostat at about 72. I run several computers 24/7.
