My electric and gas bills both fluctuate quite a bit throughout the year--electric higher in the summer, gas higher in the winter. I've never had them on average billing, but I'm wondering if it might be a good idea. I'm afraid--possibly for no reason--that I will end up in debt to them somehow if I'm not paying for exactly how much I used each month. However, it seems like I'd be able to budget better if I knew how much those two bills would be each month. I'd appreciate insight as to whether average billing is a good idea. Thanks!
