Gas vs. oil heating

To the real estate editor: On Jan. 18 you printed a question from Joan B. Mangum of New York which asked for a rational way to decide between heating with gas and heating with oil over the next 10 to 15 years.

I can't predict future prices, but if New York's current prices are similar to those in the Chicago area (42 cents per therm of gas and 95 cents per gallon of No. 2 heating oil), then $1 of gas produces about 1 1/2 times more heat than Steven R. Wennerstrom Elgin, Ill.

We want to hear, did we miss an angle we should have covered? Should we come back to this topic? Or just give us a rating for this story. We want to hear from you.
