    A new study from Resources for the Future and National Energy Policy Institute tested out ways to cut down on oil imports, and found the single largest saving could come from switching U.S. long-haul 18-wheelers to run on natural gas. Clean Skies News' Margaret Ryan spoke with T.

They discussed the status of those efforts and Pickens' predictions for Congressional action.
