I lean toward gas for efficiency, no tank in the basement, and price seems to be a bit better generally for gas.

However, there is a good debate on the issue here: http://hvac-talk.com/vbb/showthread.php?164700-Oil-vs-Natural-Gas-boiler. The post I found most interesting was the HVAC tech who said he has never replaced gas for oil in 30 years.

There is also a lot of good info here: http://energybible.blogspot.com/2008/03/natural-gas-vs-heating-oil.html.

To keep legal happy, let me just say that I am not an HVAC contractor, and you should never even look at your furnace without having a qualified, liability accepting HVAC contractor present.  To keep sales happy, let me just say that you can find an HVAC contractor that's happy to take your money here: http://www.furnacecompare.com/perl/find_contractors.pl.
