My electric bill was stupid high last month. I mean stupid high. Somehow, I used less electricity than I did last year for the very same month, and yet the price of electricity had magically risen enough that I paid more on this year’s statement. It’s not like I’m walking around my house, leaving the fridge door open, either. I’m being as cautious with my electricity usage as possible, and the bill is still higher.
