There is a term called gas that we all pay when we want to make a transaction or execute a contract on the Ethereum blockchain platform. So, typically gas is the internal pricing for running a transaction or contract in the Ethereum network.

Every time a transaction(development purpose) is to be carried out or any contract deployed on the local blockchain, MetaMask displays a prompt, detailing the requested transaction, along with the Gas price(very low) as well as any other Ether amount that might have to be sent and for that, test ethers will be used for payment. Below is an example of MetaMask prompt message for paying gas.

Note: Test ethers are used only for development purposes in a way they are fake ethers.
