"Currently, LNG is about half the cost of diesel (on an energy-equivalent basis). Converting trucks to dual-fuel (LNG/diesel) is expensive, but with more demand we can expect that truck manufacturers will start producing trucks that come off the assembly line as dual-fuel."

Yup, and I think it was that posting of yours that prompted my comment here.

Yes, I've been saying it often. Having lots of dual-fuel trucks sounds like a good idea to help put a ceiling on the price of oil, by having diesel fuel price increases stimulate a shift away from diesel by commercial vehicles.

I'm also waiting to see LNG-powered locomotives. The Russians are working on LNG powered aircraft
