Washington has the lowest electricity costs in the country

by Emily Marek

Electricity prices rose 6.2% in 2023 and show no sign of slowing down any time soon. However, Washington ranks as the U.S. state with the lowest electricity prices, meaning major savings for Washingtonians.

WalletHub analyzed energy costs for every state in the country, taking into account monthly costs for electricity, natural gas, motor fuel and home heating-oil. Washington fell square in the middle at No. 25 for overall energy costs — however, when it comes to monthly electricity costs, Washington is among the least expensive states.

The average Washington household will spend $618 per month on overall energy costs. Broken down, that’s about $99 for natural gas, $145 for motor fuel, $260 for home heating-oil and $114 for electricity. That electricity cost is the third-lowest in the country — however, when you compare cost with usage, Washingtonians actually have the cheapest electricity prices in the country.

On the flip side, the state with the highest monthly electricity costs was Hawaii. There, the typical household will spend $204 per month on the electricity bill.
