I am trying to budget here. If I had to pay for a one bedroom with gas stove, how much would my gas and heat bill be for the half of the year (or more) when it's cold?
this is for a 1bd shared by two adults

Well I'm getting an apartment and the landlord said 150 tops in the winter months and that's for a studio with electric heat.

i would assume then that gas heat would be even higher in my case then, (since you would be paying "electricity" for electric heat).

I don't think I've ever paid more than $120 per month for gas in the winter months.

Electric heat is a lot more expensive than gas heat. Massachusetts has the most expensive electricity, after Hawaii and Connecticut I think.

What kind of building is it? My daughter and her friend rented a 2 bedroom in a 2 family and they were paying over 500 a month just for gas heat (top floor), the stove was electric. It wasn't insulated, and the windows were old.
