Any Foolish advice on commodity options?

I got a cold call from some guy in Flordia who wanted me to buy a few June Gasoline Contracts.

"Can't miss with this one!" was part of his line.

Personally, I am very skeptical, but somebody from his firm had called me last September trying to get me to buy Heating Oil. I didn't bite then and in hindsight I am regretting it some. However, I know that buying contracts with a relativly short time to expriation (2-3mo) and without any diversification is almost russian roulette.

Thanks for any advice
