    The selloff in Navistar (NAV -11.5%) gathers steam after a federal appeals court vacates an EPA rule that would have allowed the company to sell heavy-duty diesel truck engines that fail to meet the latest pollution standards for engine exhaust. The ruling was a big win for NAV's competitors, who initially filed the suit: Cummins (CMI +2.3%), Volvo AB (VOLVY.PK +1.2%) and Daimler AG (DDAIY.PK +0.2%).

    Never before has the price gap between natural gas and diesel been so large, making trucks powered by natural gas an alluring option for company fleets. Examples: Waste Management (WM) says 80% of its truck purchases in coming years will be fueled by nat gas, and Ryder (R) is expanding its program of renting out nat gas trucks and is introducing them in clusters it operates for big retailers.
