when my parents bought the house i grew up in in 1975, it still had an oil furnace, but my dad switched us over to a gas furnace shortly thereafter.

i still remember the giant oil drums in the basement that he didn't get around to removing until i was older.




EDIT:

looking into, it looks like it's a regional thing particular to the northeast. the rest of the nation has very few homes still using heating oil.
