Utility Bill

Utility Bill

The amount a household or office is expected to pay for electricity, water and/or gas each month. Utility bills vary according to one's usage. However, many local and national governments regulate the profits of utility companies, limiting the amount they can charge customers. Utility bills are almost always a significant business expense.
