How to invest in crude oil with ETF.

Crude oil is reaching all time high $82. Many of us are looking at some softening. However you are long or short with crude oil let me put some ETF in question.

Well known and most liquid are (OIL) and (USO) with one to one relation to crude oil price. If you are more bullish or bearish with some part of oil business maybe you pick some speciality from ETF like following:
SPDR Oil & Gas Equipment & Services (XES), iShares Oil Equipment & Services (IEZ), SPDR Oil and Gas Exploration & Drilling (XOP), iShares Oil and Gas Exploration & Production (IEO)

Of course all are short able. But if you have no shorting available there is still one inverse ETF UltraShort Oil & Gas ProShares (DUG) with almost double leverage.
