Your Questions About How To Invest In Oil

Susan asks…

How do you invest in gold or oil?

I keep talking with friends and co-workers about making investments… yet I don’t even know how to get started. How exactly can I go about actually investing in oil or gold? Are there companies or people I need to talk to? Can I do this myself? Who are these oil and gold companies that I buy from (that are also legit and have been around the longest)? Also, what are people’s opinions on stocks vs commodities? I’ve got one co-worker telling me it’s better to buy the actual physical gold then stocks because stocks could devalue at any moment, but if you have the physical gold still, you’re safe.

If a barrel of oil is $100 and the price of gas is $3.00 in chicago, how much will a barrel cost when a gallon

of gas in chicago costs $4.00.

i want to invest in oil and utility mutual funds and am wondering if investing in funds which the price of a barrel (roughly$100) is worth it. Is it proportional? if gas goes from $3 to $4 per gallon does that mean a barrel of oil has to go up 33% to accomplish that?
if so, then its definitely worth investing in (especially since Jugo chaves is ordening troops to go to bolivia.
