Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A, RDS.B) today signed a preliminary agreement with truck-stop chain TravelCenters of America (TA +14.7%) to supply liquefied natural gas for heavy-duty trucks at 100 fueling stations across the U.S. starting in 2013. Shell hopes lower fuel costs will spark demand for alternative fuels for heavy-duty road transport trucks.
