Compare home heating oil prices with natural gas?

Is there anyway to accurately compare home heating oil prices with natural gas prices since both use different units of measurement for usage and price?

Thanks.

    Contact the natural gas supplier in your area.They should have a conversion formula to point out the cost savings.
    There is an obvious savings if you convert to a natural gas forced air heating system versus a boiler system using either steam or hot water.In the forced air system,you are heating the end use air directly with a heat exchanger that is typically above 90% efficient.With a steam or hot water boiler system,you are heating a transfer medium(steam or hot water) and then heating the end use air/space.
