Was at a conference this week and T Boon Pickens talked about the future of diesel and natural gas. Today, natural gas powered vehicles cost 1/2 as much to fuel than diesel. Many large trucking companies have ordered and will be moving to natural gas due to diesel pricing itself out of the market. Many already have begun the switch (ups, etc). Commercial truck manufacturers now offer a LNG model. He predicts prices on diesel will soften in the future as more commercial trucking switches. Natural gas prices will climb some due to demand.

Chrysler is owned by Fiat. Now Italian. That leaves GM and Ford.
