Which is better, a gas stove/oven, or an electric stove/oven?

I currently have a gas stove standalone unit with standing pilot lights. It doesn't work all that great, and every time I start the oven, the pilot light for the oven goes out and I have to relight it.
I am considering a new oven, but am I better getting another gas oven, or electric.
I looked into having a 220 installed there, and because of where the kitchen is located at, it is going to be almost $300 to have it installed. There is no electric service, only a gas line, where the stove is currently located at.
The stove has been a pain to clean, so I am attracted to the smooth top electric stoves.
