What's the right sized water heater for 2 ppl?

We recently moved in and took over the rental on our heater, which I believe is 40 Gal. We run the dishwasher once every 2 days & wash all of our clothes in cold water. Through 4 months we have never run out of hot water. Therefore, I am thinking of downsizing, as our current one costs $23/month, plus the extra gas to heat it. Any thoughts on what size would be appropriate?

I don't think you'll save much, maybe a $1 or $2 a month. I'd prefer to have hot water when me and the wife are getting ready at the same time which is almost every day for us.
