How to Play Rising Gasoline Prices

NEW YORK (SmartStops) — President Obama made some commentsover the weekend that there is no “silver bullet” to help bring down gas prices. While this isn’t what most Americans want to hear, investors and traders can profit from rising gasoline prices to help hedge their daily expenses.

If you believe that Obama is right, here are a few ways to profit from rising gas prices, either by playing certain ETFs or specific equities.

In his weekly radio address, Obama said: “Now, whenever gas prices shoot up, like clockwork, you see politicians racing to the cameras, waving three-point plans for $2 gas. You see people trying to grab headlines or score a few points. The truth is, there’s no silver bullet that can bring down gas prices right away.”
