Has anyone been following this ETF? It's intended to track with the price of gasoline in the United States. I'm seeing gas prices I haven't seen in years, so it's hard to imagine prices will be going too much lower. And of course if they do, the price I pay at the pump will hedge the price I pay for this stock.

Also, historically gas prices go up in the summer. This stock seems like a no brainer to me, which always makes me a little nervous.

Unfortunately it has no options volume. I'd be tempted to buy some calls for July of next year.

Anyone have any input about this fund positive or negative?

I don't have an opinion, but I took a look at the chart. It appears that if anyone had bought the gasoline contracts on Feb 1 and sold them on Jul 1, they would have made money in 2006, 2007, and 2008. If the pattern holds and UGA tracks the contracts as expected, I would be a buyer on Feb 1, 2009.

The chart:

Good trading,

This turned out to be an excellent trade as UGA appreciated about 50% from Feb 1 to Jul 1.

Ah, this is a nice blast from the past. Sadly, I didn't make the trade, maybe next year!
