One of the hottest commodities to invest in, especially in this day and age, is good old-fashioned oil. It is a reliable commodity that is used around the world for everything from transportation to heating. Oil is also only growing scarcer and becoming more expensive with each and every passing day. The time to invest in oil and gas stocks is now. The longer investors wait to buy stock in oil the higher the prices will become later on. Oil prices have only been rising since the turn of the century, and with the strife going on in both Egypt and the Middle East in general, it is unlikely that oil is going to go down in price any time soon.
Some might argue that green technology is the way of the future, but realistically we are still all heading to the gas pump for fuel. It might be possible one day to have automotive transportation based on batteries or water alone, but that day is far off. For now we are required to use fossil fuels for transportation. And by placing good solid dollars into these oil and gas stocks we can help to further develop and refine the ways in which we use oil.
Our efforts should be focused on investing in oil and gas stock to help create safer and cleaner burning fossil fuels that will last longer. This will help both the investor and consumer. Investors will have a constantly rising hot stock of gasses and oils. While the consumer also benefits from fuel, that while still being more expensive, will last longer and burn cleaner in the long run.
Green technologies have a long way to go, and for now we are all reliant on fossil fuels. It is better to make the best of this situation than depend on unreliable green technologies that are still in their infant years of development. We will get there one day, but for now the time is to invest in oil and gas stock. For its future, for our future, and most importantly for your future!
