A straightforward way to invest is to buy stock in companies that are engaged in drilling for oil or that are in the oil service industry. There are also mutual funds that invest in stocks that are related to the energy industry. Other options include exchange traded funds and exchange traded notes. ETFs and ETNs invest in oil futures contracts instead of stocks. These can add some diversity to your portfolio and you will have the choice of investing in one sector of the energy industry, like natural gas, or investing in a variety of commodities.

The decision you make will depend on how much exposure you want for yourself: indirect exposure through stocks that are energy related or direct exposure with and ETF.
