Sabrina Jacobs. Data for Progress

Most Americans say they’re more likely to purchase an electric stove than a gas stove, and two-thirds support regulating the emissions from gas-burning stoves after reading about the harmful indoor pollution that they create. Most Americans (54%) would prefer to purchase an electric stove if they were in the market for a new stove, including majorities of both Democrats (57%) and Republicans (53%). After reading about harmful effects of gas stoves, people who said they would choose a gas stove as their first choice dropped from 36% to 27%.
