Energy sector mutual funds/ETF's

The energy sector/natural gas stocks seem to be taking a hit. When, what, and who's energy mutual fund/energy ETF to best take advantage of this "temporary(?)" dip in prices/value?

I'm a semi tree-hugger but we're going to need fossil fuels well into the future.

semi tree-hugger = I drive an SUV but I use CFL's and lower the heat and turn up the A/C when I can.

I use XLE, VDE is very similar and slightly cheaper. No idea if they have any particular advantage right now.

Petroleum & Resources Corp. | Investments in Global Energy and Natural Resources

My choice would be Adams Express Natural Resource closed end fund PEO which sells for a 15% discount. However you need to be able to recognize that there still is possibility of large drops in the oil and natural gas sector if prices do not rebound as cash is going to start being an issue and they'll need to issue stock for liquidity replacing all the stock they bought back when prices were 40 percent higher for most of these companies
