Default Battery/Nitro Cost

Whats the cost difference between flying a Nitro 500 and an electric 500? Is nitro cheaper than batteries?

Interesting question. Wonder why there's no replies for over a year. I would think the answer would lean towards electric. mainly for the cheap price on batteries. Easy answer if you set some rules to the question. How many flights a week. How much does one pay for fuel. Though I'm sure the 500 size motor would sip fuel, I still think electric would be cheaper over 6 month time.
