New water heater and costs

My water heater was built and installed in 69, 51 years ago. Wondering when I replace it would a gas be a lot better on cost than a electric. Currently a electric one here now and working well. Don't plan on touching it till necessary so have time to plan and start any plumbing I might need. Will move heater to a new location at that time..

Am I understanding you correctly..... your hot water is 51 years old ?!?!?
That's almost unheard of.

If I had a choice I'd definitely opt for a natural gas model.
This will require outside venting now.

Wonder if it has a little monkey inside throwing wood on a fire like out of the flintstones.
