The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which Industrials editor/analyst Isaac Pino and research analyst Lyons George discuss topics across the investing world. Natural gas is all the rage in the energy sector due to abundant supply and plummeting prices. However, can we as a nation relieve ourselves of our dependence on foreign oil and embrace this new fuel source? When it comes to transportation, there are plenty of moving parts that could impede our progress. However, Isaac and Lyons shed some light on the companies that can make the transition in a seamless fashion and reap significant savings along the way.

The economics of natural gas need to make sense for American businesses to embrace this broad shift. Right now, that's clearly the case for companies like Waste Management. For investors, there are other opportunities to ride the wave of soaring oil prices, however. Take a look at the top oil stocks recommended by Motley Fool analysts in a recent special free report: "3 Stocks for $100 Oil." The report won't be available forever, so we invite you to enjoy a free copy today.
