right now, gas and oil and electrical energy cost about the same for water
heating, because electrical energy prices are state-regulated, with longish
delays for rate changes, but it will catch up, since we often make 1 kwh of
electrical energy by burning at least 2 kwh of natural gas and evaporating
a gallon of water. do it at home, and you can use the heat :-)
