Each month your meter reading date should be shown on your bill, you can go out and jot down the index (reading) on that day and you will be able to see your usage before the bill even comes!
Most utilities have a minimum charge even if there is no consumption during the billing period. This typically covers their recurring fixed costs to read the meter and maintain service to your house.--
