Currently gas, had oil in the last house, gas in the one prior to that.
I'll take gas any day. Oil was a pain. Seemed like they were always nickel and diming me to death with bills for stuff on top of oil deliveries...underground oil tank insurance policy, boiler maintenance plan, etc. Plus, I still had gas anyway for the stove / dryer.
Gas is easy...no deliveries, I can't run out, and I don't have a basement that smells like a truckstop.

Oil fired hot water, and a prayer for mild weather!
It's going into the single digits this weekend!!
I hope my boat's OK!

Nothing heats like a good air tight wood stove. Keep a pot of water on top for moisture.

My parents have oil, I have oil. Never smelled oil in my basement. I spot buy, so I get good prices. Put a new burner in 8 years ago. Cut my oil consumption by about two thirds. The weather guy is on TV as I'm writing this. A high in the teens this weekend!!!!

Liberator - I was too lazy to spot buy. As for the oil smell, maybe if I replaced the boiler, it would have burned cleaner and more efficiently. It was pretty old.
Now my only problem is that I doubled in sq. footage when I bought my current house. I was a little surpised by last month's gas bill. (First winter in this house.)
