I don't have a gas stove but support those that do.

I prefer a gas stove over electric for cooking and making espresso. We unfortunately have an electric. 

Also, this kerfuffle seems to be manufactured to get people’s panties in a wad:

THE FACTS: The White House says President Joe Biden would not support a ban, and the commission, an independent agency, says no such ban is in the works. 

“I am not looking to ban gas stoves and the CPSC has no proceeding to do so,” CPSC Chair Alex Hoehn-Saric said in a statement on Wednesday.

Quote

“To be clear, CPSC isn’t coming for anyone’s gas stoves,” he wrote. “Regulations apply to new products.”

Despite this, news of a potential “gas stove ban” continued to spread in headlines and on social media. Some users, including Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, shared an old photo of first lady Jill Biden cooking on a gas stove, suggesting hypocrisy.

“The federal government has no business telling American families how to cook their dinner. I can tell you the last thing that would ever leave my house is the gas stove that we cook on,” West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin tweeted Tuesday.

I really wish politicians would spend more time doing productive things (HA!), rather than lathering up their bases.

Oh no doubt. Worst case scenario they put regulations on them to where they suck so bad noone wants them anyway. Like HE washing machines.

Me too... But the gas line in Splendora stops right across the street from me ☹️ 

We have an electric glass top, and I hate it...

Splendora sounds like an artificial sweetener 

Used to be named Cox's Switch...

I'm glad they changed it...

But Cut and Shoot is right down the road from us 🙂

Or the new automatic dryers that always stop when your clothes are just the right level of damp. 

I don’t even use our dryer anymore - just hang the clothes on a drying rack. Also helps with the dry air in our apartment.

While Biden may claim he isn’t your article directly references (SF, LA, NY) some municipalities are banning them. (California starting in 2030 will no longer be allowed to purchase new gas stoves) New York and Oregon haven similar legislation being proposed and pushed in new buildings etc so it isn’t hard fetched to see where the confusion has started especially with how the govt handled the report. Whether it is Biden or not states are trying to do it so if you want to keep buying gas stoves or you enjoy gas cooked food in many of your fine dining restaurants well you have a choice to push back. May not effect too many people but I don’t blame those that don’t like it for being vocal. A lot of things on the right or left get pushed through without the public being aware or having a say so I’d rather see passion then apathy.
