Handling Gas Line Leaks

 Those individuals who experienced the aftermath of a gas line leak are probably a lot more cautious about allowing it to happen to them again.

Unless a house is fitted for natural gas, the appliances would have to be operated with electricity, which is considerably more expensive. Exposed wiring can usually be contained, but gas poses an entirely different kind of threat.
