    It is known that oil furnaces provide a combination of efficiency and comfort to most people. An oil furnace prices will cost a person from $2000 to $5000. On the other hand, installing more complex oil furnaces will cost a person from around $6000 to $10000. Gas furnaces are also known for the efficiency and comfort that they bring to people’s lives. A self-contained, vented, gas wall furnace which gives off hot air directly to the surrounding space of a house will cost a person around $500 to $1500 depending on its capacity and energy efficiency. Moreover, its installation can range from $1000 to $2000 depending on the complexity of the installation in houses and establishments. Source: http://oilfurnaceprices.com/

    Think what will happen is what usually happens to any commodity or goods that stay overpriced, people will find and develop alternatives. Look forward to the day when hopefully because of a cheap clean alternative energy that there is little market for oil and the sheiks and some of the 1% starve.... Wait doubt someone with billions will starve but..... at least they might potentially see fortunes dwindle.

    Just checked the World Bank pricing for Diesel Fuel (furnace oil) in Iran and it is $.02 per liter or about 9 cents a Canadian gallon. Do ya think we are paying enough at $5.00 per gallon or should they jack it up a bit more? Poor Irving family and their Bermuda bank accounts.
