Yes, the electricity bills come around too often to everyones house hold,the gas is too expensive for even the summer months,and Media com cable charges too much for over all crappy cable shows. I pay $95.oo a month. Its not worth it but i have to have television because Dubuque wont offer a free satelitte station for free television channels,and the local congress men wont do anything about it. Everyone is burdened with high utilities and I know they charge unneccecary amounnts. Missouri has cheaper utilities,in kansas city. Is the dubuque utilities just plain greedy? Who will write to the local congress members of Iowa and city officials about a free satelitte for tv and cheaper utility bills?.

Janan probably is born and raised in Dubuque and knows no different. The rest of us that have been to the real world know that there is more option, better pay and less good ole boy politics. We pay double in cable and utilities compared to many people I know in different states. Did you know Dubuque also has the highest average cost of a burger in the nation sitting a dollar above the lowest average?

Ya'll ought to try living in the south where utility rates almost double what they are in Dubuque. Or where you get less than half the insurance coverage for the price than you do in Iowa. True, food costs are higher and gasoline costs are higher, but in the longer run it all equals out.

The national average is that it is 8% higher cost of living in Dubuque, Ia than it is in Dallas/Ft Worth. Housing is 60% higher. So YES it is more expensive for EVERYTHING in dubuque, ia without a doubt. Janan your very harsh and uncaring you must be from Dubuque! Wow.
