What is your average cost per click using Google Adwords?

We all live in different parts of the country, and even the world. One thing most successful, growing companies have in common is a website and a way to get the traffic there. Google Adwords is one of the very best ways to do so. We all live in different areas, so our experience is different with what we must pay to get on the front page where we need to be. What is the average you pay per click in your area? Tell us your area and your Cost Per Click. Thanks

I live in a small city in Utah.
My average is 95 cents. The more used keywords up to $1.30.

My average click is between $3 and $3.50. It really starts to add up and I'm not sure if I get much out of it. Posted via Mobile Device

I like the topic although I don't use adwords. Maybe I should start. I'm already on the front page (first in line actually). On average I get about 15 calls in the spring and five or ten more through the summer. I wonder how many more I might get and what the return on investment would be. I hope to see more feedback on this one.
