This can be a wide-open question - by the time you have gas service installed (which your utility might or might not do for free), the oil tank removed in accordance with UST / AST (Underground Storage Tank or Above Ground Storage Tank) regulations, and furnace and hot water heater (if that is oil fired or you will be converting from electric to gas to save cost) replaced, I seriously doubt you can do it for under $5000, and probably closer to $8-13,000 if gas service will be new.

Google this search string for various blogs and organizations that compare pricing - "convert from oil to gas heat cost".

You local gas company, state energy efficiency agency, and the EPA all have booklets and computation guides to help assist you in estimating cost and potential savings, though of course till you get actual bids you will not know for sure what it willl cost. Do NOT forget to check on the value and timeframe availability of federal and state tax credits, and any local energy efficiency rebates available - if you milk those for all they are worth, in some locales it can add up to 100% of the cost though typically more like 15-25%.

If this is new gas service, consider for resale value or additional savings for you having gas run to stove, clothes dryer, maybe fireplace as well at the same time.

Hopefully Todd or BayAreaAC will jump in here with their thoughts and cost estimates.
