Newbie question on pricing for options on oil futures

Hi all,

I am looking for resources on educating myself on pricing for for options on oil futures. The general idea is to buy something that appreciates with the price of crude oil and my time horizon is very long term (1-3 years).
Reading online, it seems that buying LEAPS on oil futures might be one way to go. Deep in the money leaps on oil futures should move more or less at the same rate as the price of oil. Did I get that right?

If so, where can I get reliable information on pricing, open interests, contract size, volumes, greeks, implied volatility etc..
I am looking for resources which I can use to get a good initial idea before getting into things like opening commodities futures trading accounts etc... at my broker.

Since you're US based, TD Ameritrase for think or swim would be a good easy source of data.
