I'd like to think the supply chain is more secure for gas than oil.
And sending a few less $$$$ overseas appeals to me as well.
True, you don't have to worry about getting the oil truck in the middle of a snow storm.
Also, a gas furnace does not need to be cleaned out every year.. Downside is every so often they go KABOOM. Happened right down the street from me, pretty much leveled the house.

They just don't go KABOOM for a reason I can guarntee they had a gas leak in inside or outside that migrated into the house causing the explosion, My gas bill for a 1800sqft house was about $150-200 a month thats leaving it on 64 when where not home and 70-75 when we are
Yes I know that, common knowledge.
In this case a construction crew digging in the street pulled out the line that caused the leak, blowing up the house.
Does not happen that often, but it does happen from time to time....
Years ago, oil companies used the safety factor as a selling point..
