The Latest on Natural Gas Prices

The Energy Information Administration just released its storage levels of natural gas, and the worry on investors' minds was that with storage always at its highest in November right before the coming winter, will we run out of storage space? What will this do to natural gas prices? In this video, Motley Fool energy analyst Joel South takes us through the numbers the EIA released, assuages some of those fears, and shows why, as we move away from the incredible surpluses that we've had recently back toward the five-year average storage levels, prices are moving up again after the recent all-time lows.

Oil and gas have some major players these days, with fluctuating commodity prices, and some major plays for investors to make. National Oilwell Varco is perhaps the safest investment in the energy sector because of its industry-leading 60% market share. This company is poised to profit in a big way; its customers are both increasing the number of new drilling rigs as well as updating an aging fleet of offshore rigs.

    If these two men and if T Boone Pickens are right and if N Gas hits $6.00 ,does that mean that coal stocks like Arch Coal and Peabody Energy are grossly undervalued today ?
