Buy the derivative of oil , ie , food. If oil gets more expensive , so does our food.

Fertilizers : POT , MOS or an agri ETF like DBA

Cotton has also been on a tear due to higher oil.


I know i know , its paper.  Apart from precious metals though the only way to truly hedge this clusterfk of an economy is to buy land or real estate with no leverage.   Not for the little people.

WHEN oil gets more expensive, everything gets more expensive.

Between PPI and Transpo, there won't be any more profit, but do continue pitching your "blood from stones" biz plan.

 I don't day trade oil...so my investment horizon is different. PBT is the probably the best pure play, but it can make your taxes complex if you trade it often.

actually, almost every oil producing country will need to boost production because they'll need the cash to keep the masses under control.

I think we'll start to see a total collapse in price in the next 4 weeks.

light sweet crude is what refineries like..try selling the Saudi heavy oil and there is just not many refineries set up to process it quickly.

sour crude cost less/bl for that reason.

Nobody wants the Saudi salt water blend sludge. As always they are hoping the propaganda works again.

Riyadh/London, 24 February (Argus) — Saudi Arabia has contacted European oil companies to ask them about quantities and qualities of crude that they will need to compensate for the loss of Libyan supplies, a senior Saudi official told Argus today.

“Saudi Arabia has expressed its willingness to meet the requests of those companies, but it wants to know the quantities and qualities of crude required,” he said. “We will do everything possible to meet the needs of the European companies, but they need to tell us how much they need and what kind of crude,” he added= guess what ???????????????

Saudi Aramco in London told Argus today that it has been in contact with European companies Total, Eni, and Mediterranean refiners Hellenic, and Motoroil to provide reassurance that Aramco is ready to provide extra crude and to enquire about the companies' needs. None of the European companies have requested extra oil yet, added Aramco.

It is unclear whether those refiners in the Mediterranean and Asia-Pacific markets offered Saudi crude as an alterative — rather than west African — would take it, as it is more sour and heavy than Libyan crude.

You are correct

Saudi Oil reserves are so easy to lie about because they just pump more salt water in to replace the oil lol.

There are some secret protocols that the world is not aware of and that have been negotiated since the last year :

In a high level meeting between Saudi potentates and the Tea Party conclave of uber alles neo-cons, it was agreed that Sarah Palin would visit Saudi territory in the weeks following their meeting. This was fueled by two major considerations : Her "drill baby drill" campaign inciting US oil barons to pump in her native Alaska scared the shits out of the Arab Nabobs. Additionally, they were aware at that time of the imminent Wikileaks about their own Peak oil. In the face of the imminent double whammy the Saudis implored SP to visit the Saudi soil and bless Saudi oil wells with her 'hockey mom' song. She gracefully complied, against due payment of a sum in pure gold to her personal coffers, whose amount is a state secret only known in Fort Knox where her physical treasure lies hidden.

As a result of Saint SP's visit, the Saudi government is proud to announce that all extra production in Saudi wells to replace falling Libyan output, will be in form of SWEET hi-grade oil, alike the Libyan quality! Thanks to the lord, SP flies/rides again, like her childhood hero Destry, alias Ronald Reagan!!

The world dances closer to the precipice. Yea, oil prices will go down along with the rest of the waste- based economies.

Modernity's bill collector can be seen at the end of the road, like the fifth horseman of the you-know-what.

Meanwhile, Saudia's ponzi scheme is added to all the other ponzi schemes. Try something over and over and over and one day it will come up with a different outcome, right?

Oil prices are not going down even though the

economy goes down the drain.

First: Bernanke will mantain the printing press to full throtle even if US hits hyper inflation.

Second: Worldwide industrilized agriculuture

has been built upon fossil fuels. (pesticides and

fertilizers are made from this)

Third: The world has reached the 7Billion

people milestones, these people including you

and me needs food, therefore energy prices will

continue to sky rocket.


There can't be more money than energy you have to back it up.

 Oil could always spike down, witness 2008-2009. I agree that it will not stay cheap short of total economic collapse.

Buy the dips....at the risk of overstating the case, compare the yield on PBT with the 10 yr. Part of any reasonably diversified investment portfolio should be the cash flow from an oil field....

It's always been easier to promise oil production increase than to do it.  

Have a look at Iraq's recent projections of 13 million barrels per day by 2013.

They presently do about 2.3 mbpd.

Oil price can definitely go down, even priced in dollars. The overall trend and fundamentals are up of course, but if price gets up to $150 again (or maybe $200 if you factor in QE2,3...) and we have a repeat of "08, price could get down around $50-60 again. As long as the Middle East is on fire, so will oil prices. Of course we brain dead Americans continually waste this incredible resource to drive back and forth to Walmart to buy a bunch of crap we don't need, instead of using it to build a 21st Century, sustainable, environmentally friendly infrastructure. Sad, really. http://therookiecynic.wordpress.com/2010/10/12/your-lethal-education-par...

Saudi Arabia is going to get hit with these revolutions and they are horribly afraid of it, especially since 90% of the oil production comes from the Shia dominated East.
