Keep Your Gas Cheap (Here’s How)
Mankind stuck a giant virtual straw into Mother Earth back in the late 1800’s and is now slurping oil at an astonishing clip. But not fast enough to keep up with rising demand as billions of new oil consumers from the rural populations of China, India and other emerging markets transition into the 21st century and trade bicycles and rickshaws for internal combustion engines.
Bottom line: the cost of your gasoline is going up, Dear Reader. Way up. From the London Telegraph we read:
“Brent crude jumped to $115 a barrel last week… Diesel is above the political pain threshold of $4 a gallon in the US… Goldman Sachs said the industry is chronically incapable of meeting global needs… ‘It is only a matter of time before inventories and OPEC spare capacity become effectively exhausted, requiring higher oil prices to restrain demand’… This is a remarkable state of affairs given the world economy is close to a double-dip slump right now, the latest relapse in our contained global depression.”
There are two strategies you can put in place right away to counteract this household budget-destroying trend. The first is to trade the oil sector long — i.e., to buy equities that will appreciate dramatically over the longer term as the cost of crude oil rises.
Example: You buy $10,000 worth of oil stocks which double over the next 5 years to $20,000. Divide the $10,000 in profits by 5 years and you have an extra $2,000 a year to put towards gasoline. If you consume 1,000 gallons of gasoline a year (about 20 gallons a week), you will have reduced your personal cost of gasoline by $2 a gallon. As a nine-year-old would say, easy peasy.
There are any number of oil sector ETF’s to choose from (Google ‘oil sector ETF’), and in several flavors from conservative to aggressive. Be sure to check with your financial advisor before making any such move. Unless, of course, that involves a simple meeting with yourself.
The second strategy is to take a modest piece of your money and grow it with Prism Solutions. That way you don’t have to wait for OPEC to bilk you. You can start bilking the Forex market right away!
Illustration: A $10,000 account generating 4% net per month could put another $400 a month in your tank. In fact, it could take care of 100% of your gasoline requirements. Try that with a bank CD and it could take you a century, by which time gasoline will be $1,000 a gallon and you’ll be dead.
