Liquefied Natural Gas
Natural gas is the fuel of the future for heavy-duty, long-haul tractor-trailer trucks. Switching to liquefied natural gas (LNG) would save the industry money and slash oil imports.
After being cooled to -260 degrees Fahrenheit, natural gas turns into LNG that can provide as much power as the diesel that currently fuels our nation’s transportation of goods. An environmentally friendly alternative, LNG burns cleaner and moves trucks at about half the cost.
America’s trucking industry consumes one out of every three barrels of oil. Providing a new option at $1.50 to $2.00 less per gallon than diesel would represent a massive savings for the industry and a boost to the domestic economy.
Clean Energy (NYSE:CLNE) is working to develop a LNG highway system stretching from coast to coast that would allow 18-wheelers to take advantage of a cleaner, less expensive option for the indispensable trucks that form the backbone of our nation’s commerce.
