Energy vs. Precious Metals
As I see it, there are two major ways to play the devaluation of the dollar: precious metals and energy. Personally, I prefer energy. I don't think gold and silver have major run-ups without oil also benefiting. Also, oil and gas have a lot more uses than gold and silver (and yes, they are also more abundant).
I pose this question: why must I buy precious metals over oil and gas? As usual, I am very interested in your responses.
