There was a previous large thread on this:

viewtopic.php?f=10&t=192998

The results, when I tabulated them were:

"The average ER is around 0.14%, the low is 0.04%, the high is 0.62%"

Mine is a about 0.05%; thank you TSP.

0.07% - yes, you read that right. And I’ve worked hard to get it there...

0.37% per Morningstar X-ray
How did you get it so low?

I think most would say this is high compared to many others here. I have a handful of active funds that drive up my ER somewhat, some because I have to make the best of my 401(k) options, others by choice as low cost, low turnover active funds that fill specific spots in my portfolio.

Mine is probably around .25, I don't bother calculate it, but I don't understand the point of these constant comparison posts that have been appearing lately. Nobody learns anything from them. What does it matter if someone else answers .01, .1, or 1%? How does knowing that benefit anyone?
This topic on a bogleheads forum inevitably trends toward someone eventually posting that they actually get PAID to invest :). Reminds me of this recent article:

Congratulations on starting out on the right foot! Many if not most of us didn't know about the importance of expense ratios when we started investing and/or didn't have very low cost funds available to us. Having the knowledge, opportunity and ability to build a low cost portfolio from the beginning is a huge advantage and it sounds as if you're taking full advantage.
Thanks, FrugalInvestor! I'm was lucky to be raised by people with good habits and who knew about VG. And I'm grateful that everyone here has been so welcoming.
