In the futures market or in technologies or companies related to natural gas?
Nat gas has yet to show a bounce for higher prices and actually too low of prices can be bad for investments. If the price is too low, then the corporations that drill will decide to not drill anymore until the prices are high enough to profit (already happening in Nat Gas as we speak). Until the nat gas market shows bullish indicators I am staying away from it. On a side note, 1 single contract of nat gas doesn't cost you much, and it is likely not going to $0. You would have to watch out for prices staying stagnant around the $1-$1.50 range for a few years though, and you would have no return at all. December 2012 contract is $2.995/mmbtu and the current month (June) is $2.074. That's still a hefty premium for the forward months.

Given the abundance that is being found across the US and the world it doesnt seem like the best place to invest as M6 said.
Unlike oil we have too much natural gas for there to be much volatility2008 Honda Accord Coupe

Not time yet. Domestic storage is projected to be full by the end of the 3rd quarter, which would dramatically reduce the price.

How are you going to invest in natural gas ... all of it has been bought up.

Coincidentally - on a recent flight from Singapore some guy was loud talking/bragging about his NG ventures and how much money he was making. I wondered, if he is making so much money, why is he on a free AMC flight and not flying commercial/business class.Integrity first, Service before self, and Excellence in all we do

I would also be interest in investing. A lot of lorries and trains are going to be able run on either NG or diesel soon. By the year 201X I know two companies will have this available.
Mater of fact i might buy a new Honda Cvic NG this summer. $1.78 gallon sounds great to me ...
I would invest in NG but all the big names all ready have the lots. If you don't invest in the millions of dollars it is pointless.
And then over this Americans are good at making hype ... hybrids first now this. This is just a short term solution and it doesn't matter in the long run.

Not the gas itself, but the extraction with drilling companies. We've done about 200MM in funding for 2 domestic drilling companies. Needless to say, we're 'long' on NG.

The company I work for deals a lot with the gas processing industry specifically shale fracking. We are getting our feet wet in hopes NG becomes cheap enough that it becomes more widely used. Then all sacrifices and investments will pay off.
Such a plentiful resource we need to utilize more.East bound and down, loaded up and truckin',
