Default Gas dryer operating cost

What do you estimate your monthly cost is to run your gas dryer? I know it's a very subjective question, but I'm just trying to get a rough idea.

Thanks for the info Icon. The reason I ask is because I'm looking to get into waterbased printing. I hear the HIX NPII will the do the job with it's IR elements.

Radiant panel IR dryers often don't get the job done on one pass and you'll have to run it through two or even three times depending on print size and length of heat chamber. Will you be printing small images, large or jumbo? How many feet of heat does that dryer have?
Yup it's forced.

Do gas dryers have a consumption rating? metric/hr?
