The online bill pay service doxo recently released its report summarizing the 2018 costs of the nine most commonly paid bills in the United States. Data was obtained from the company’s 2.5 million customers.
Unlike consumer surveys, doxo’s report represents what people actually pay and provides a way to compare costs across the nation, with a focus on major metropolitan areas. While the bill payer collects data on 45 different bill categories, the report highlights the nine most common: utilities (water, electric, gas and waste), cable and phone, mobile phone, auto loans, auto insurance, life insurance, health insurance, dental insurance, and alarm and security.
These are the 20 most expensive metro areas, listed from lowest to highest average monthly expenses across those nine common bill categories.
