I've been long in CLNE for about 2 yrs. This was my worst performing stock, only because I had an entry pooint of about $9.00, and wrote a put when the stock had been around $22 and had pulled back to $19, then continued to fall and I added shares to prevent the loss of the premium. Today, CLNE announced a nice profit, beating expectations and sales volume is also exceeding expectations. If Sen McConnell will end his filibuster of the energy bill, this stock will take off like a moon rocket. He's getting paid by big oil and the coal lobby $600,000 lately, to look out for their interests, which are contrary to the interests of the nation. Passage of the energy bill will add about 1 million new high paying jobs and lead to development of a huge new worldwide export market for our new technologies, plus reduce foreign oil imports by 40 percent in the first 5 years after passage. The energy bill is now supported by 85 percent of Americans, according to a just released Gallop poll.

I've been watching CLNE, and the broad market pretty carefully over the past couple of months,and I'm becoming more optimistic again after taking a "paper" bloodbath on my energy stocks in general, although most of them, even with the panic attack on Wall Street on energy issues, are still up with over 50 percent gains. I'm planning on writing a December Put @$11.00 in the morning on CLNE. This is going to be like finding money on the street corner. I'll either end up owning another 1,000 shares at about $10.25 considering the premium received on the put, thereby lowering my cost on the last issues I bought to cover a put, or I'll pick up several hundred bucks for free, which I think is more likely and enjoy some nice appreciation in CLNE and my other energy stocks which have been stellar performers, i.e. Precision Drilling, Sandridge Energy, Hercules Offshore, and my latest "diamond in the rough" Kodiak oil and Gas, up 20 percent in the last two weeks since I bought it.. The news that GM has signed a deal with Westport for CNG engines is great news for CLNE. For local commuters not driving long distances, CNG would be great. I have friends who even have compressor units at home to tie into their own "filling station" at an extremely low fuel cost. Even if you fill up at the local CNG stations, the cost is still only $1.39 per gallon, $2.00 below gasoline. The bottle of alternative fuels is being uncorked, and the big oil companies aren't going to like it, because their days of a total monopoly on transportation fuels are numbered. Exxon was smart enough to see the handwriting and is now a major player in natural gas in the US. With electric, hybrids, and possibly even hydrogen vehicles coming, the Genie's bottle has been uncorked, and it is a great thing for America as a whole, for our people, for our manufacturing economy and job creation, and for the environment. With or without the republican's help in passing the energy bill, we are going to adopt alternative energy sources. They might as well start acting like Americans instead of employees of big oil and coal, they have been slowing down the train, but they can't stop it now.
