July 29 -- The first liquefied natural gas tanker ship passed through the expanded Panama Canal on July 25, hauling gas from the U.S. Gulf Coast.

Natural gas already has a lot going for it -- it's cheap, burns cleaner than other fossil fuels and it's plentiful. The new route just adds to why LNG may be the fuel of the future.
