Average utility bills for a house in Maryland?

My husband and I are considering purchasing a home soon in Montgomery County, Maryland. We are currently renting in that county, but our utilities have been built into our rent price. We have no idea what it would actually cost us to run a household ON TOP of the mortgage costs.

The house we are currently looking at is old, like most houses in the D.C. region. But it has been updated. It’s not too large, about 1200 square feet. Any guesses as to the costs of utilities?

What is the average electric bill?
Average water?
Natural gas as it does have a gas stove?

Are there any sewer or trash fees, or can I expect that to be built into the mortgage?
