Liquefied Natural Gas
Natural gas in liquid form takes up about 1/600 the volume than when it is in its gaseous state. The liquid state allows companies to efficiently bring the fuel into areas where pipelines are unable to run. Natural gas can be traded through various exchange traded funds or one can buy futures contracts to gain exposure to this commodity.
