Gas or electric kettle

Considering how many times we use a kettle in a day the total for a year will be at least a thousand per year.
If you have the option which would be the most economical kettle to use........ Gas or Electricity ?
Cash wise would it be worth switching to the most economical one or is the savings not worth the hassle ?
I guess this is a good question for all you mathematicians out there !

Look at your bills and compare the price per kwh. My gas is a LOT cheaper.
Though I guess an electric kettle is probably more efficient in transferring heat to the water.

Re: Gas or electric kettle

Factor into the equation that gas kettles last for years whereas electric kettles seem to need replacing every so often. I've never been able to keep one for longer than 18 months or at most 2 years.
I would imagine that gas has to be cheaper. I use a gas tumble dryer and that is certainly more economical from what I've read.
