How much do you pay for gas heat. & How much are your utility bills on average.

Trying to do an analysis as to where I should move.

you're gonna need a whole lot more info to do an analysis of any meaning.

but if the rate per cu ft of gas is the the variable in a decision of where to move?

I think he means there are just too many variables to compare utility bills of one house to another. Generally, the newer the home, the more/better insulation is in it and the more efficient/cheaper it is for heating/cooling vs an 80 yr old craftsman that's never had any insulation added. Also, sf, 1 story vs 2 story, w/ w/out basement, apartment, etc... I've lived in an apartment that was on the "first floor" however, there were open carports underneath our 1st level that in the winter we had $450/mo gas bills vs our neighbors who were directly above us who paid $200/mo. Same layout of apartment, just that they had us cranking up the heat below them and we had frigid wind blowing underneath us. Right now I have a 3 bed, 2 story home with basement that's about 20 yrs old and on the coldest of months pay around $200-250, averaging $180 over the 3-4 months it's really cold. However, during the summer I'm paying $250 for electric vs $75-$100 during the winter and only $10/mo for gas (gas heat, electric water heater). And that's another variable, is it only the heat that's on gas or is it heat and water heater or heat, water heater and dryer, lots of variables. You probably will find it cheaper/more comfortable to run gas heat, but I don't think it's something you should run away from unlike heating oil...yikes!
