    Propane vs Natural Gas

    I am trying to figure out how the cost of propane compares to that of natural gas. I found some websites with the price of propane/gal and natural gas/Mcf. But I am trying to figure out how many gallons of propane are in a Mcf of NG.

    I am also trying to figure out how many Btus each burns. I've seen that natural gas burns about 1,025 Btus/cf. I am ok with that number. Propane is a bit more confusing i have seen some say propane burns about 91,300 Btus/gallon but I have also seen about 2,500 Btus/cf. This would mean that there are about 36.5 gallons of propane in a cubic foot.

    Anyone know if these number sound right and where I can find better concrete information on this?

    Thanks.
