Difficult question to answer without more info about the unit you may be interested in. Even in local Boston area, utilities included or not included in rent, vary from building to building. The costs are also contingent upon your usage, if heat, electric etc. are not included in rent.
If you are paying for your own heat, work ing from home, and like it toasty warm on a winter day, your cost will be higher than if you turned up your thermostat only in am and pm.
If you are considering a move to a new apartment, it's best to ask your agent to ask the current tenant if they would be willing to share info about their costs. However, whatever answers you get can certainly be different for you in the same apartment, as your lifestyle may be different than the person living there now.
Some potential costs to inquire about:
Electricity (for lighting? cooking? heat? appliances? Water heater?)
Gas: (for heat? cooking? water heater?)
Is there a separate meter for your own water usage?
Oil: for heat?
Cable, internet, Wi-fi connections/service? ( for eg.some condo units may have basic cable included)
