Explosion, fire at Japanese nuclear plant; workers leave

How much heating oil does a normal house use and whats the average cost?

We are looking at moving to a property that uses heating oil rather than gas and as this is a brand new concept to us both we have no idea how much a four bedroomed property would use or roughly how much this costs.Any information or links to websites that can help would be great.

More important is how well insulated the house is. How cold are the winters where the house is at. How efficient the heater system is. What level the thermostat is kept at.

Some of these heaters and boilers can be very efficient. Even then, if the heat distribution system is not efficient, or the house is real old, an efficient heater can only help so much no matter what the fuel type is. My mom lives in a 160 year old farm house with rusty radiators in Western Illinois that cost her $3,000 a month in heating oil during the worst winter months. OUCH!
