For those looking to speculate on nat gas-powered vehicles, Cramer continues to recommend Westport Innovations . The company makes the technology that allows engines to run on nat gas. He thinks Westport could benefit from an agreement between TravelCenters of America and Shell to build a network of 200 nat gas fueling lanes in at least 100 TravelCenter gas stations along the U.S. Interstate Highway System.
