Landlord wants to replace gas oven with electric. Help?

We have enjoyed 6+ years of our gas oven/stovetop, but now our NYC landlord is planning to replace all the ovens in our building with electric. This seems like it will make our (already high) electricity bill even higher. Is there anything we can do? [more inside]

Is it too soon to ask my new landlord for a new oven?

So, I moved into my new apartment 2 weeks ago, and finally found the time to cook my first real dinner. The problem is my oven. I love to cook, and it looks like this apartment came with an O'Keefe & Merritt oven, something mustard-colored out of the 70s (not the cool vintage 50s kind.) Two of the burners wouldn't light at all, and the other 2 lit, but when I turned them off and tried to re-light them they wouldn't. And this is my first older oven, so I guess you can't use the oven and the stovetop at the same time? Or at least I couldn't. This aggression will not stand. I guess my question is, after only 2 weeks of occupancy, how do I go about talking to my landlord about getting a new oven? Or talking her into getting a new oven, in these trying financial times. I guess that every tenant before me was fine with it but I could barely make edible pasta and garlic bread and that's not gonna work. Thoughts?
