For a while now I have promoted instruments like the First Trust Revere-ISE Natural Gas Index ETF (FCG) and the JPMorgan Alerian MLP Index ETN (AMJ) as the best ways to play the expanding U.S. natural gas industry.
Thanks to the advent and development of unconventional natural gas drilling techniques, analysts now estimate that the natural gas reserves in the U.S. could adequately supply the nation for a century.
