The article reports that Clean Energy has started production at its liquefied natural gas facility in the Mojave Desert, about 125 miles outside Los Angeles, California. It states that the plant will produce up to 160,000 gallons per day of liquefied natural gas, but it could later be expanded to 240,000 gallons. T. Boone Pickens argues that shifting to natural gas would reduce the U.S. dependence on foreign oil. In betting on natural gas as a transportation fuel, Clean Energy has launched the Clean Truck Program at the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, California. The aim of the program is to encourage the replacement of old diesel trucks with new trucks that run off of liquefied natural gas.
