How much should I expect to pay for utilities in San Pablo each month, depending on the time of year?
Utilities won't change too drastically from season to season because of the temperate climate in San Pablo. A family of three should expect to pay about $300+ per month. This depends upon your proximity to the coast, your family size, and the size of your home. As a general rule, people who live in coastal or near-coastal cities tend to pay less for cooling than do those who live more inland. Heating expenses are usually not much of an issue since there are few months when you really need to turn on the furnace; and then, it's typically at night.
