How Natural Gas Becomes a Game Changer

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which industrials editor/analyst Brendan Byrnes and consumer goods editor/analyst Austin Smith discuss topics across the investing world.

In today's edition, Brendan and Austin talk about natural gas and how it can become a game changer as a transport fuel. General Electric and Chesapeake recently announced that they will collaborate to make natural gas more available as a transport fuel. GE will provide over 250 natural gas compression stations, a significant amount considering that there are currently fewer than 400 in the U.S. Brendan talks about how this will affect these companies and others as they look to take advantage of cheap natural gas.
