What is the difference between a gas dryer and an electric dryer?

A gas dryer operates off of both electricity (typically using a standard three prong 110v plug) and natural gas (using a flexible gas line connection). An electric dryer operates off of electricity (typically 240v). There are several varieties of 240v plugs (different shapes). When purchasing an electric dryer, take a picture of the existing outlet so that the store you purchase from knows what kind of chord to attach. Gas dryers are typically a little more expensive to purchase than an electric dryer.
