Today Fool.com analysts Blake Bos and Austin Smith discuss one natural gas stock that's surged recently: Westport Innovations (Nasdaq: WPRT). Share prices have risen 16% over the past five days, a good omen for an analyst upgrade by CIBC yesterday. There is a lot to like about this company; while risky, it has enormous potential to disrupt our transportation sector and handsomely reward shareholders in the process.

If you're interested in investing in Westport today, you're no doubt worried about the necessary infrastructure build out that'd have to occur for them to be a viable investment. One company that's helping solve that riddle is Clean Energy Fuels (Nasdaq: CLNE) The company is building out the "natural gas highway," and may be the answer to the natural gas chicken-or-egg conundrum investors are facing right now.
