    7 Gas-Proof Stocks
    By Rick Aristotle Munarriz
    August 25, 2005

    Remember when you thought prices at the pump couldn't get any higher? And then they did? With crude oil prices�racing toward $70 a barrel, no relief appears to be�on the way. Brother, can you spare a gallon?

    There are ways to buy into companies that stand to prosper from pricey petrol�yet are�familiar to most of us. In fact, the leisure sector is loaded with such companies.

    Leisure? Isn't having to pay a king's ransom for a gallon of gas a killer of disposable income? If even the mighty Wal-Mart has blamed soaring fuel costs as a deterrent to its havens of thrift, can there really be some winners in this consumer-geared space?

    Absolutely. As long as the economy doesn't derail in the process, there are plenty of stocks sitting pretty, miles away from the nearest pump. Let's dig into seven of them.�

    1. Netflix (Nasdaq: NFLX). What's not to like when it comes to Netflix and higher fuel prices? Having DVD rentals delivered straight to your mailbox solves two round trips to the video store. If money is tight, entertainment doesn't get any more affordable than firing up the DVD player for the night. Netflix also has the advantage of a distribution network that allows it to ship titles overnight through first class mail. The last bastion of fuel surcharge-free shipping is your friendly, neighborhood post office.

    • Gee,Motley Fool only had three articles touting Netflix today......they are the anti- bbi wins fools......maybe when some folks get their charge card bills they will cut out Netflix to pay for the increased gas charges. Maybe increased interest rates will help Netflix as consumers can't remortgage house to pay for movie tickets so that will help Netfix.....only a fool takes the Motley Fool advice.
