Since the Pickens Plan launched in July 2008, we've made enormous progress in getting America the energy plan it deserves.

We've now got the cheapest fuel in the world, be it oil, natural gas, or gasoline. In addition, more and more of our heavy-duty trucks are running on domestic natural gas instead of OPEC oil. That's a big step in the right direction. And a Natural Gas Highway now links one end of the country with the other.
