In PR, for natural gas stoves in the kitchen, does PR have underground natural gas to hook up at your residence or must you buy propane tanks?

My place in San Germán had a tank, but we´re talking about a town of 30,000 people. Someone here from San Juan, Ponce, Mayaguez, etc might have it hooked up.

No underground......Puerto Rico wasn't built that way since it's a tropical island and they don't need it to heat the homes during winter. So there wasn't a demand for that. Propane tank is more logical and economical on the island and it's a must since the electric power goes out a lot on the island.

To do it underground they have to break a lot of concrete and run lines to every home that weren't built for that (most of the homes on the island are made out of cement) and that would take lots of money and investors and you need a huge natural gas supplier and the Puerto Rican government would want to control it and take a big cut. If they don't do it right it could blow a whole city if there is a leak. I don't trust the Puerto Rican government managing that. Look how they run the power company and how they ran the telephone company.
