WARRENDALE, Pa. -- Shale gas exploration and development has been a hot topic in the news. The development of natural gas vehicles, both for fleets and for individual vehicles, is taking off without government subsidies and the fuel is gaining acceptance for transportation by the general public.

Following the example of other major energy companies, Shell recently announced that it will build and operate a network of at least 200 natural gas fueling stations at 100 or more TravelCenters locations on U.S. interstate highways. What impact does all this have on the development of new vehicles?

A new SAE International symposium will explore that topic.
