https://www.greencarcongress.com/2019/1 ... sivak.htmlWhat is the cost of usable energy for driving and heating our homes?
. . . The main findings are as follows:
We purchase substantially more usable energy when we buy natural gas for our furnaces than gasoline or electricity for our vehicles. This is the case even after taking into account the cost of the electricity to power air handlers for natural-gas furnaces and the heat losses through ductwork. In average scenarios, one dollar of natural gas buys about six times the amount of usable energy than does one dollar of gasoline and about three times than does one dollar of electricity.
In average vehicle scenarios, one dollar of electricity buys about two times the amount of usable energy than does one dollar of gasoline.
