no. we are getting rid of our gas hob for induction because its safer, but not in case the house blows up as like you say its unlikely. but Ive set fire to things on more than one occasion, and its much safer with kids as it doesnt stay hot after use.

Perhaps you should hog tie and slay them with a large blade before cooking them.

If my neighbour or someone a few doors away has a car crash, I don't get killed though.

Yeah I'm not suggesting this is some big issue, but it's one of those 'rare but extreme consequences' type things. And it isn't something you personally can opt out of, unless you can live sufficiently far away from anyone else which generally in this country unless you're very well off, you can't.

(I mean, you can opt not to have gas, but you can't force your nearby neighbours to opt out too.)

You do if they crash into and ram you off the road leaving you in a tangled mess before your car explodes in a massive fireball and melts your face off.

Before someone says it - do I think it's likely? No, it's very rare. But it shouldn't ever happen. There is no need to have the actual gas in homes.
gah

gas yourself, don't gas yourself... make up your mind

The aftermath of a natural gas disaster can be unbelievably grim—sky-high sheets of flame, entire structures gone in seconds. The world got to see the destructive signature of a gas blast Wednesday in East Harlem, when a pair of five-story buildings exploded and crumbled into a fire-licked pile. At the most recent count, seven people died in the incident and at least 60 were injured.

Ron Lavezzo, fire-division chief for the Bay Area city of Millbrae, is a man familiar with gas-scented mayhem. He was among the first on the scene at the San Bruno pipeline explosion of 2010, a conflagration so fierce the media at first reported it as a plane crash that had set the "whole neighborhood on fire."

"After that thing happened,” says the 30-year firefighting veteran, “I started becoming very intimate with how many gas lines were in my district."

Gas disasters can occur in different ways with varying levels of damage, from shattered window glass to a screaming flame-jet that carbonizes rows of houses. Lavezzo described for Cities his own experience battling a titanic gas blaze and the kind of situations that could provoke a spectacular blowout like in New York:

False - you can drop matches into a bowl of petrol and they will not ignite. What will ignite are petrol vapours in the correct fuel/air ratio, same as with gas.
