The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which industrials editors/analysts Brendan Byrnes and Isaac Pino discuss topics around the investing world.
In today's edition Brendan and Isaac discuss natural gas, which is priced incredibly low right now. While Brendan doesn't believe that natural gas will remain this cheap long-term, he does think that it will become increasingly attractive as a transportation fuel, partly because of the high price of oil. One company that Brendan likes to take advantage of lower natural gas prices is Westport Innovations, which has the technology to turn diesel engines into natural gas engines. Two other companies, Cheniere Energy and Clean Energy Fuels, could be poised to take advantage of low natural gas prices as well. Find out why.
The Natural Gas Act could change the face of energy consumption in one of our nation's largest industries.
