Gas furnaces tend to come with a higher efficiency rating than oil, which makes them cheaper to operate if the price of gas is roughly equivalent to the price of oil. Gas furnaces can also be a bit more expensive so from a cost perspective you need to factor this in. Also, gas tends to be a lot less expensive than oil, though this can vary from one area to another, and in one piece online the difference between what one would spend on gas for heating versus oil was considerably less.
Also, gas furnaces tend to be quieter and cleaner to run.
So I would lean toward gas, but you need to do some local research to determine what is the best buy for you.
