Cost Comparison: Compare your home heating fuel to natural gas
- To compare oil and propane costs to natural gas, oil and propane must be converted into therms.
- To convert oil to therms - multiply cost of oil per gallon by 0.72
- To convert propane to therms - multiply cost of propane per gallon by 1.092
- The current cost of one therm of natural gas is $0.98 (based on a monthly bill for a typical residential 12,000CF user)
