Thank you for the quick response. Wave warp was what I initially tried but did not have good luck getting the smooth looping forward motion, but now that I know that is the right effect to use, I will go back in and see if I can get it.

In addition to the above you can also use additional distortion effects like Bulge to control the tapering effect near the edges.
How did you eventually solve this issue? Please let us know for the benefit of helping others with the same problem.
My bad, I should have followed up. I was unable to re-create the effect the way I wanted using Wave Warp. I ended up creating the lines from scratch using a trial version of Trapcode Form which came out great, but I was really hoping to figure it out using Wave Warp, but could not get the fluid movement.
I tried this on a straight horizontal line - just a stroked path on a shape layer.
Wave Warp, with the settings Omar shows above, seemed to nail one of those lines almost exactly. Just tweak the width to make the others. A little bit of gradient coloring, and you're good to go
I was was able to Wave Warp and grade the line just fine. The trouble I ran into was animating all of the lines to get the looping fluid oscillating effect. I could not seem to get the smooth forward motion and variation of all the lines that I was lookiing for.
