FAMILIES face a blowout in basic household bills of up to $1300 next year.
The Herald Sun reports a CityLink toll rise announced yesterday is the latest hip pocket slug, driving up costs by as much as $76.80 a year for the average motorist from January 1.
The latest sting follows increases to electricity and gas bills, as well as myki fares, also set to take effect from January.
Victorian households will be paying up to $310 more per year for water under proposed increases from July, while gas and electricity bills will rise by up to $250 from next month.
Private health insurance providers have also applied to increase premiums more than 5 per cent.
If approved, this would add about $150 per year to a $3000 family policy and $75 to a $1500 policy for a single, starting in April.
It came as the Herald Sun revealed myki fares would rise up to $285 per year for commuters using a daily zone one and two ticket.
Based on historical data, council rates would jump by up to $240 in some areas, and car registration fees would increase by more than $10.
In addition to these rises, V/Line train travellers face a rise in daily fares of up to $3.60 from January.
