If you can get away with an electric model, from a sheer economic standpoint you are miles ahead of gas powered.
You will never get the power from an electric blower that you will from a gas model. However, blowers are tied with string trimmers for the #1 gas-powered tool sitting in small engine repair shops.
If you're religious about using your appliance regularly and never letting gas sit in it for more than a month, gas-powered may work for you. Otherwise, find out what your repair guy's favorite cookies or beer are.

I have a black and decker 18v blower that runs on the same batteries as my cordless tools. It's fine on hard surfaces. Not as good on rough surfaces. Can't blow many leaves with it. That's what the rake is for. But I use it to blow off my driveway, sidewalk, deck, and porch. It's light duty for sure. And I have multiple batteries anyway for the other tools. If I have a lot to blow I might need 2 batteries. I'm happy with it for the light work I bought it for.
I prefer to live dangerously free than safely caged!

I'd go with gas powered just to antagonize the tree hugging, bunny loving, granola eating ferrets that live in my neighborhood.

Had an electric. Used it for one season. Bought a Sear's weedeater with blower, edger attachment and wouldn't go back. 3rd year and no problems. I'd do the same again.
For a man interested only in passin' through, he suddenly found himself entangled in a deadly struggle….
