FirstTrust185 5 Funds to Play U.S. Oil DominanceFinally, the IEA estimates that demand for natural gas will increase by 50% worldwide, jumping to 5 trillion cubic meters by 2035. In the U.S., the sheer abundance of the fuel and low prices will help gas overtake oil to claim the largest share of our energy mix during that time. That will certainly help pad the profits of those firms focusing in on the fuel.

The best way to home in on that opportunity still resides with the First Trust ISE-Revere Natural Gas Index Fund (NYSE:FCG). Featuring a virtual who’s-who of natural gas producers like Range Resources (NYSE:RRC) and Southwestern Energy (NYSE:SWN), the ETF’s 30 holdings are a great way to play the IEA’s energy outlook.

While the fund has suffered in the face of historically low natural gas prices, the long-term picture remains rosy for investors.

As of this writing, Aaron Levitt didn’t own a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
