Have you had both a gas furnace & a heat your experience which were you more satisfied with & whY?

I am trying to make an educated decision, but there are so many different terms & components that I am unfamiliar with & it's hard to comprehend as a complete systems novice. We currently have oil, so I'm assuming if we chose to do a gas furnace, it would cost quite a bit to have a gas line run.....would my savings in the long run be worth the extra money? I read on one website that electric is 3 times as expensive as gas, but I dont see how that is possible with the unstable nature of gas/oil prices. HELP, i'm so confused

We are geting rid of the oil system all together, the furnace kicked the bucket last winter, & we just used a kerosene heater since we were planning to upgrade this year once we did the addition.

So your suggestion is that we should go with a heat pump vs a gas furnace since it would be so expensive to run gas lines? We are converting to gas or heat pump either way, we are done with the oil furnace. thanks for your insight
