Will Texans be forced to give up their gas stoves?

The next big fight in Washington, DC might be over one of your favorite kitchen appliances. The US Consumer Product Safety Commissioner, in an interview with Bloomberg, said using gas stoves can be a “hidden risk.”

This could mean a ban on gas stoves in the future in the United States. According to CNNthe federal agency is considering banning gas stoves which it considers a source of indoor pollution linked to childhood asthma.

A December 2022 study in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health found that indoor gas stove use is associated with an increased risk of current asthma in children. The study found that nearly 13% of current childhood asthma cases in the United States are attributable to gas stove use.

Trumka told Bloomberg that the agency plans to open public comment on the dangers of gas stoves. Options in addition to a ban include “establishing device emission standards”.

I don’t know about you, but everyone I know who has a gas stove loves cooking on it and will probably say no to getting rid of it. According to CNN, 35% of homes in the United States use a gas stove. That number climbs to 70% of homes in California and New Jersey.

So wait and see how the battle for your stove unfolds. If I had to guess, a lot of people wouldn’t leave this one. Senator Ted Cruz put it this way on Twitter yesterday:

Come and take it!
