Second, let’s offer new tax incentives to help companies buy more clean trucks like these.
Third, let’s make sure all these new trucks that are running on natural gas have places to refuel. We know how to make these trucks, but if they don’t have a place to pull in and fill up, they got problems.
So we’re going to keep working with the private sector to develop up to five natural gas corridors along our highways. These are highways that have natural gas fueling stations between cities, just like the one that folks at UPS, South Coast Air and Clean Energy Fuels are opening today between Los Angeles and Salt Lake City. That’s a great start.
And finally, to keep America on the cutting edge of clean energy technology, I want my Energy Secretary, Steven Chu, to launch a new competition that encourages our country’s brightest scientists and engineers and entrepreneurs to discover new breakthroughs for natural gas vehicles.
