Last year, I think the minimum Piedmont would charge was $10 / month (even if you used no gas). This summer, it has jumped (for us) to $11.25. But that minimum charge seems to cover any gas we use for the water heater and the stove during the warmer months.

Or do what we do (like Steve and Flying) - we always budget $200 / month for gas and electric, and both combined always come out to less, so that's $ back in the bank.
