Well, they put all that pipe in the ground, they meter your gas consumption, thy look for leaks, and it is still incredibly cheap. Try someone in the third world who has 1/10 your income and pays 3x as much for cooking fuel.
For the most part, ex medical care, college, and a few other things, America is a raging bargain.
