Clean Energy Fuels Corp. released the second edition of "The Road to Natural Gas," an update of truck companies, refuse haulers, fleet operators, airports, municipalities and other organizations which are making the switch to natural gas with transportation fuel, station construction and services provided by Clean Energy."The momentum towards natural gas in transportation is definitely picking up speed," said Andrew J. Littlefair, Clean Energy's CEO and president. "I'm also pleased that we remain on track to complete the number of fueling stations along our America's Natural Gas Highway that will connect the essential corridors for the trucking industry."The second edition of The Road to Natural Gas contains a listing of agreements signed or executed since the first edition was released on July 31. (To view Volume I, go to http://www.cleanenergyfuels.com/news/2012/7-31-12.html). Also included is a list of liquefied natural gas stations completed over the last three months as part of Clean Energy's America's Natural Gas Highway. Many of the new stations are located at Pilot Flying J truckstops, Clean Energy's partner. Currently priced up to $1.50 a gallon lower than gasoline or diesel depending on local markets, the use of natural gas fuel reduces operating costs for vehicles and reduces greenhouse gas emissions up to 30% in light-duty vehicles and 23% in medium- to heavy-duty vehicles. The U.S. Department of Energy reports that 98% of the natural gas consumed in the U.S. is sourced in the U.S. and Canada, making natural gas a secure North American energy choice.
