But for the electricity, not only is there transmission loss, but there's also repeaters, lines, equipment along the way, the maintenance of that equipment, accessing that equipment, oh it's horrible. Maintaining infrastructure is a horrible horrible game when you're outside of a major city's orbit.
What is an electricity "repeater"?
So for electricity you install a high voltage, low loss transmission line once. Losses are in the order of 3%/1000km. Maintenance is fairly low.
For gas you need to install a large underground tank, send large vehicles that need regular, expensive maintenance and which themselves produce a lot of pollution and CO2, staff the dispensing station and maintain the pumps. Plus you cause significant additional wear on the roads due to the heavy tanker going over them.
Can you cite an actual real world location in the US that backs up your claims?
