Thanks for your post with numbers.I tried to calculate.You wrote that with natural gas you would spend only 0.48 instead of 3.50 with gasoline.But you didn't show calculation regarding wood.I divided 14 lb by 5120the result is 0.002734 which is the number of cords to replace one gallon gasolinethen I multiply 0.002734 by 150 (the price of a cordthe result is 0.41that is the price of wood to replace one gallon of gasolineso i think with the price you provide, wood is a bit cheaper tha natural gas. summarizing:gasoline $ 3.50natural gas $ 0.48wood $ 0.41OK, natural gas is more confortable.But in places were natural gas costs 3 times the price of U.S. (it's the case of the most part of the world), the use of wood is very cheaper.Correct me if my calculation is wrong
