of what I've seen in Europe, almost everything is cheaper in the states.

Your water cost will also include the cost of sewage (waste). Assume about 40 -50zl per month per person.

Electricity is dependant on whether you have electrical heating or not. If you have gas, or city heating your electricity costs will be far lower. For a typical 2 bed 60m2 apartment expect to pay about 150 - 200 zl / month.

If you use electrical heating there are many factors you need to take into account such as ceiling height, window quality, age of the building, etc. But expect to at least triple your electricity bills in the winter months

Poland has some of the cheapest electricity prices in the world, almost comparable with the US.

Poland has a very cheap electricity compared to other countries, and is one of the cheapest in Europe for electricity. Anyone living in Ireland and the UK would envy what you pay for electricity.

I was wondering how much water and gas is roughly per month in Warsaw for 1 person. Please give an estimated price.
I meant water and electricity... not "gas."

electricity ~ 60zł pcm
water cold ~ 8zł/m3
water hot ~ 18zł/m3 - 26zł/m3
