Gas looks cheap.

Buy gas producers, processors, transport and storage companies.

A lot of gas in Europe supplied by Gazprom (disclaimer: I am a shareholder) is linked to oil prices with 9 months lag...

Why is it always 'natural gas'?

How do you make gas then apart from a hot curry?

It was to distinguish it from coal gas/town gas which burns a bit differently so burners needed adjusting or changing. Most towns used to have a gas works to make gas from coal and gasometers to store it.

Gas prices are more volatile. Oil is expensive because production costs are higher, and there's greater uncertainty about supply (not least due to middle-east unrest). But Oil and Gas are not substitutable, they have quite different sets of uses, and so it shouldn't be assumed that the price of one will follow the other.

Town gas is made by an industrial distillation process from coal (possibly other hydrocarbons can be used I'm not sure), arguably it's manufactured. Natural gas comes out of the ground more or less as is, sometimes they have to filter off some other gasses depending on the source, plus they add the smell so people notice a leak.
