Best play on oil

Is there a way to invest in oil (price per barrel) that anyone knows. I have been in a energy sector fund but I noticed in the last few weeks that when the market goes down the sector fund (made up of stocks) follows the market. I would like to find a purer play if possible. I think the market is a bit overpriced but I don't see oil going down dramatically.

Take a look at a new ETF with the ticker USO (US Oil).
