Growing concerns of crude oil prices soaring per barrel level, conventional fuel consumers are affected by the cost of fuel per gallon of gasoline. This has impacted the bottom-line of many organizations in the transportation sector, relying heavily on gasoline. Therefore, embracing an alternative fuel initiative is important to addressing the issues of price fluctuations of crude oil. A business strategy to address issues of price fluctuations (crude oil), Crown Equipment Corporation is taking initiative to finding alternative fuel serving a fleet of service vans, with consideration for diesel, battery-electric (lithium), compressed natural gas (CNG), and liquid petroleum gas (LPG). Data is obtained from a variety of sources including Crown Equipment Corporation, WEX, and Government and EPA sites.
