    Natural Gas vs. Heating Oil

    I understand there are a lot of conversions going on. The natural gas shortage is not going away and oil is far cheaper to heat with than oil, this was true even before the crisis. People switched because new houses had gas connections and the BTU content of gas was slightly cheaper than oil and it is cleaner and easier to maintain a gas furnace. That is upsidedown right now, it is 30% cheaper to heat with oil even counting the $100 annual maintenance.
