I've been reading a book about a couple who both lose their job and refuse to accept help from anyone until they find something new. They play a game of "utility roulette" every month to see what utility they will pay last, meaning which one could they probably go without in the event that it gets cut off for a few weeks, they'll be okay. I have been in a similar situation and have been thinking about this myself. Mine would definitely be gas. My stove is gas, but I can cook in my toaster oven, microwave, crock pot or grill. It's summer, so I don't need heat. And if I absolutely had to, I can take a cold shower (my hot water heater is gas). Everything else in my house is electric. On the other end of the spectrum, I think electricity would be worst thing to lose. Just wondering what you guys would choose if you were/have been in this situation.
