#CJ on Jan 19, 2015 :
Um... I pay $675 for a 3 bedroom 1.5 bath and my electric is roughly $165/month. I was reading the averages and basically said DAMN! I got lucky, huh?
#shawn on Oct 07, 2014 :
I don't know many pittsburgh folks who have a Disposable salary of $3,278...especially after taxes.

I believe the average yearly income is somewhere around $35,000 BEFORE taxes, insurance, living expenses, etc.
