That is where the 9.3X from as the AVERAGE Nashville Area [6 counties] was $243.01 monthly for Gas and Electric bills. That made the comparison pure and clean [although debunking the 20X thingie] and would be within 2% of National Average.
The article said the house consumes 20X the average consumption of natural gas, didn't say anything about the electric or the combined bill. I'll accept your math on the total bill.
I'm no fan of Gore either, for an obvious reason and one that isn't: He remade himself so many times trying to get elected, it sickened me that he's from my state.
