University Park is one of the oldest areas of Irvine built in the late 60's.  I believe you are a slab foundation.  Here are some things to consider.  Gas stoves nowadays require a higher BTU demand.  BTU stands for British thermal unit and is what gas volume is measured by.  The gas system back in the 60's were size for the gas demand of all fixtures minus a gas stove.  Therefore what happens is that the gas system that you are trying to tap into was not sized for a system that can handle a modern day gas stove.  Gas pressure to a home is very low, it can be quantified as approximately 4 to 6 pounds of pressure.  This forces a gas system to be properly size to handle the volume needed.  Another thing to keep in mind is that current Uniform Plumbing Code for gas supply piping minimal size is 3/4inch.  What this all means is that you should supply the gas stove from the gas meter.  Interior gas pipe  installation allows you to utilize either black iron pipe or TRACK pipe.  Black iron is rigid pipe and requires fittings and a threader.  TRACK pipe is corrugated and is flexible.  TRACK pipe requires nothing more than a utility knife and a couple of wrenches.  Typical cost depending on what material used and whether the home is a single or two story ranges from 1700  to 2300.  Good Luck

Well, some places are built for either, so if you have an electric stove and want gas, there is a kit you can buy, otherwise, it could be a major hassle, call your Gas Company and ask them if they will run the gas line to your house( crawl space or where ever the line comes into the house, otherwise, it could be very expensive since they have to dig into the ground, if your neighbor has gas, its a lot easier. I would call them before, if you live in a Condo, you might not be allowed.

It will also depend on whether there is already gas to the place - for other systems, such as a water heater, fireplace, etc.  A qualified plumber can then "tap into" an existing nearby line.

Bear in mind, though, there are is a small number of communities that were built as electric only, with no gas, whatsoever. ( What were they thinking, back then?)

It depends on how far the piping for the gas has to run, assuming there is no gas to the stove site already.   Of course, you'd have to buy a new gas stove.
