Obama Energy Blueprint Promotes Natural Gas for Nation’s Trucking Fleet

Late last week, U.S. President Barack Obama delivered his second-term energy blueprint, reiterating his commitment to a sustained energy strategy, and urged Congress to take up common-sense proposals that will further reduce his country’s dependence on oil, better protect consumers from spikes in gas prices, and reduce pollution. He is calling for the establishment of an Energy Security Trust, which is designed to invest in breakthrough research that will make the technologies of the future cheaper and better – including natural gas fuel technologies.
