Firewood vs Heating oil prices

According to an article I read awhile back, heating oil averaged $3.527 a gallon in 2008.
How does this compare to burning wood in a catalytic stove?

According to the experts, 166 gallons of oil equals one cord of wood.

This is $585.48 compared to the price of one cord of wood.

Do the math and compare your cost savings.

Wood heat in a catalytic stove is the least expensive heat available.

Further, wood is an entirely domestic resource.
