If you are looking for an investment strategy of the future, you may want to look at natural gas ETF funds. Natural gas emits far less carbon dioxide than the standard fossil fuel operated vehicles, and makes it a safer fuel to burn, as far as air quality is concerned. The only component lacking is the delivery systems to open this technology.
Fueling stations are very slow to come onboard and the cost for automobiles devised to run on this type of fuel is so expensive, that it would take years for the average person’s vehicle to amortize from the cost savings derived from natural gas. But the technology should improve with the right investment. It makes much more sense than even electric cars, although we should be going in that direction too.
Cars that have been fitted for use of compressed natural gas is getting a much per gallon cost. There are trucks that are being outfitted with this as well. If the government and the oil companies can just invest in the infrastructure of building fueling stations, we should be able to get a great economies of scale going.
There is tremendous amount of natural gas below the surface in North America. It is estimated that there is 218 trillion cubic feet of reserves waiting for us. This is something that we should be investing in for our future. We are not using a fuel that is right beneath us for one of the biggest needs our economy has, which is transportation.
I think for all of these reasons that investing in natural gas stocks makes a lot of sense. You have to know how to invest in these stocks, but you can also just invest in that ETF too.
Any investment strategy has risks associated with it. Find a professional investment advisor to help you develop a plan that makes sense for you.
