Is Trucking Ready to Hit the Road With Natural Gas?

Natural gas is making its push into transpiration, and it looks like some people are paying attention. Despite higher upfront costs, several major U.S. trucking firms are looking at moving to natural gas trucks for their fleets to take advantage of the deep discount in fuel price. In this video, contributors Tyler Crowe and Aimee Duffy discuss the infrastructure currently in place that could support such a switch, and tell investors who could benefit from a move like this in a big way.

The movement toward alternative energy is gaining momentum. One potential opportunity in this field is Clean Energy Fuels, which focuses its natural gas efforts primarily on trucking and fleets. It's poised to make a big impact on an essential industry. Read all about Clean Energy Fuels in our brand-new report. Just click here to get started.

    If the Trucking Industry could converge on NatGas, that would drive suppliers to provide ubiquitous stations, which then would drive the consumer market. I would by a NatGas car tomorrow if there was a station within 15 miles of my home or if I could compress it at home. Sadly, neither is yet an option. GE is working on a home-fueling station for $500, but that is like 2015 or later, I think. Sigh.

    Clean Energy is supposedly leading the way to add NatGas Fueling stations. Put one near my home and I'm a convert!!
