How big will your heating bills be this winter? A lot of it depends on which state you live in.

You’d think that the coldest states would cost the most to heat, but you’d be wrong – instead, it comes down to natural gas prices, according to a new survey from MoneyGeek.

Oklahoma topped the list, with an average monthly bill of $301. Alaska was second at $289, followed by Georgia at $280 and Maryland at $278.

Illinois, New York, Delaware, Arkansas, Rhode Island, and West Virginia round out the top 10 with averages ranging from $200-210.
