The Paragon Report Provides Stock Research on Westport Innovations and Clean Energy Fuels

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Aug 17, 2012) - The nation's abundance of natural gas has made it a cheaper and cleaner alternative to diesel and gasoline.

"We're serious. We're ready to buy natural gas vehicles now," Gov. Fallin said. "We all know that natural gas is a cleaner form of energy. It's an abundant form of energy. It's a less expensive and cheaper form of energy, one that will not only create American-made jobs, it will be good for our national security and economic security."

There are currently 123,000 compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicles, and 1,000 fueling stations in the U.S. One of the major obstacles preventing more widespread adoption of CNG vehicles has been the access to the necessary infrastructure.
