What's with this downgrade of CLNE by Piper Jaffray analyst claiming class A truckers want CNG rather than LNG fuel?  There is an excellent video at the CLNR website explaining why LNG is the way to go for OTR truckers; the PJ analyst should have watched it.  On the bright side, I hope y'all bought a bunch of CLNE stock when it dropped below $11 yesterday.

Well the election is over and we will be spared from constant TV ads.

Whether the person/party is in office that you wished - at this point is all about ending our political gridlock and let's get moving to solve huge problems!

We need to demand that our politicians COME TOGETHER!

We need to move forward with our energy issues.

Instead of using Natural Gas to power our big rigs and reduce our dangerous dependence on OPEC oil, the powers that be are talking about exporting it overseas so other countries can benefit from America’s abundance. ???????

Like oil, from our soil:

Which is now the # 1 export in America.

Nowhere is this more evident than in; Anacortes, WA, where in the last couple weeks (Oct 2012) three tankers of oil left the Shell and Tesoro refineries bound for China, Mexico, and Japan.

This as we all know equates to Free trade and making a dollar. OUR ECONOMY/investors

Gasoline in Japan cost 158.3 Yen per Liter / $7.52 per gallon.

It is higher in China than it is in California.

In Iran gas is less than $1 a gallon.

As here in America, the price of Iranian natural gas is cheaper than gasoline.

And natural gas is better for the environment. And WOW, It burns cleaner, affecting both sides of the continent.

Who’s behind the natural gas push in that country? The Iranian government.

The government began promoting natural gas about a decade ago, and not just in response to American-led sanctions.

A big initial reason was the increasingly thick yellow blankets of smog that often engulf greater Tehran and its 12 million inhabitants.

Keep the pressure on.

Best; Tom

Steven Chu, please choose or advise the president to elect T Boone Pickens for your energy secretaty position.  Do we have a deal????

Only and only by diversifying the energy sector portfolio in this country will America see future energy independence from OPEC's market driven globally traded oil prices.  If the entire globe relies only on one source of fuel for the world's transportation needs then it stands to loose in the long run in terms of demand for oil and surge of prices on the global scale(inflation rings the bell).  Thus in order to be energy independent we as a country need to create new sources of fuel (i. e. Nat Gas, Elecrtic for light cars, etc.) and have a real tule type to fall back on in times of need and crisis(like for example a standoff with Iran).  Only development of fuel and infrastructure creation will heal this country from many of it's ills and create options in times of need.

Buy oil and natural gas stocks as a hedge.

I spent over 30 years in the transportation industry and I can see a big advantage in going to natural gas in truck transportation. Let me know what I can do to help in Las Vegas.
