I find the convenience of electricity all included in one utility bill. I don't like when storms wreak havoc on our area and leave us with no power. All electric homes and apartments leave you without a way to do you necessary things, when the power goes out. Most of my life I have had a gas cooking stove, because I felt that the need to cook was very important. An electric stove can cause you to find a different mode of cooking. I'm going to save the disaster's that have happened because of my inability to understand electric cooking. That is another story to be told.
