Answer: Natural gas is cheaper than propane. This is because propane is processed out of natural gas. In the US, percentage of homes using propane is comparatively lower to that of users of natural gas. According to the Energy Information Administration (EIA), the average cost of heating a home with propane is $2,119 compared to $936 with natural gas. Moreover, propane prices shoot up unexpectedly. This is not the case with natural gas.
