Compared with Electricity Gas Is Still the Cheaper Medium
IN spite of the decreased cost of electric service and the increased efficiency of
electrically operated devices, the fact remains that of the two sources of energy generally available for heating, lightingand cooking, namely, electricity and gas, gas is by far the cheaper medium. At the present time one thousand electric heat units cost fourteen times as much as one thousand gas units. Furthermore, it is impossible to cook as rapidly with electric heating devices as with gas cookers. In the lighting field gas is, under certain conditions, cheaper than electricity, although it has not the large variety of applications that electricity has.
