Five Star Equities Provides Stock Research on Clean Energy Fuels and Quantum Fuel Systems

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Nov 1, 2012) - America's focus on lowering its dependence on foreign oil has caused a spike in demand in the natural gas vehicle (NGV) market. The U.S. Energy Information Administration and the Potential Gas Committee has estimated that the U.S. holds a minimum of 100 years' worth of proven natural gas reserves. Five Star Equities examines the outlook for companies in the Alternative Auto Parts Industry and provides equity research on Clean Energy Fuels Corp. (NASDAQ: CLNE) and Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies (NASDAQ: QTWW).

A coalition of 22 U.S. governors, led by Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin and Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, has stated that their states would be willing to purchase up to 10,000 new compressed natural gas (CNG) cars and pickups a year. By providing a market for CNG vehicles it has given auto manufacturers an incentive to lower costs of NGVs, which currently run roughly $10,000 more than their gasoline counterparts.

"The initiative has been enormously successful," Governor Fallin said. "We asked auto manufacturers to develop products that were more affordable and functional. With the combined purchasing power of our 22 states, we successfully provided the incentive to do so. States will now have the incentive and ability to begin converting their fleets to CNG while saving millions of dollars in taxpayer money."
