Top-Rated Oil and Gas Stocks

OK, "Big Oil" may not be ruining your life, but that doesn't make the pain at the pump any less acute. And with the national average for regular gasoline above $4 a gallon, and a barrel of crude oil perched above $130, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that oil and gas companies have the wind at their backs.

With that in mind, we'll use the aggregate intelligence of the 110,000-plus members participating in Motley Fool CAPS to find oil and gas stocks that the community likes -- those with four- and five-star ratings. The community's approval could be a sign that further research is in order.
