Crude oil, gasoline, heating oil, natural gas --- Buy 'em?  Sell 'em?  When?

From crude oil at an all-time high above $145/barrel --- collapsing down to $35. A run back up to almost $115, a three-year churn, and a plunge from $107 to barely $42 in only nine months. Sellers above $60 eventually drove prices down to barely $26! Major producers are trying to support prices, currently in a range of $40-55. Can seasonal influences be muted for long?
