Late Breaking – Clean Energy for UPS is Texas: Clean Energy Fuels disclosed early Wednesday a multi-year bulk fueling agreement to supply liquefied natural gas to two private UPS stations in Mesquite and Houston. And, under a separate agreement with UPS, Clean Energy will open three of its America’s Natural Gas Highway stations located in Texas: Amarillo, Mesquite and San Antonio, to support UPS’ over-the-road fleet.
