Does anyone know? Like, how much is one load in electricity? Surely not more than 25 cents or so? Or is it more?

There is a calculator on this page based on your local rates.

I think there is more to it than just the cost per load. For example, in the summer I always line dry because the dryer makes my second story apartment unbearable. If I were to run the AC to combat this, I'd be spending a fortune. There is also way more wear and tear on your clothing. There are more variables than just the cost of the dryer cycle itself. And don't forget the benefits to the environment!
