For example, in transportation, we explored EV and PHEV competition against Compressed Natural Gas (CNG). In the EV Breakthough scenario, EVs rapidly became cost competitive against CNG, leading to dominant market share for EVs, PHEVs, and HEVs. However, in a sustained era of cheap gas ($3/MMBTU), if EV breakthroughs do not happen quickly, CNGs will dominate the market and make it much harder for EVs to reach scale.

When it finally hits Americans how much NAT Gas it has in the ground and congress is totally exposed for not acting faster…I believe there could be a BACKLASH from the people against their representatives big-time like you never seen before! You can’t deny forever our abundant of NAT Gas natural resources here on this continent, but only for so long!
The revenues of the company were $211 million in 2010, and they are estimated by the analysts to rise to about $390 million in 2012, an increase of 84% in two years. The company should also be profitable in 2012. Obviously, the estimates for the next year are less certain than would be the case with a mature company in a steady business. Nevertheless, the trend is clear and the future looks quite bright.
CLNE is a good stock for a long term speculative investment. It is not a place for the mortgage money or the kids' college fund. Nor is it appropriate for a large portion of your investments. Nevertheless, it is a good place to put some funds that you will not need for three to five years.
As is the case will all stocks I mention, I strongly suggest that you do your own investigation before investing. That is particularly the case here since the main reason for my recommendation is a megatrend rather than the company performance itself.

Breakthough, breakthru, bullmanure....
Make the breakthru first then the market share????
For now and probably as long as the laws of physics don't change... or at least ubtil we run out of NG.... NG will be cheaper than electricity for transportation...
