SEAL BEACH, Calif. -- December 05, 2012

With the completion of its LNG truck fueling station in Matthews, Missouri
this month, Clean Energy Fuels Corp. (Nasdaq: CLNE) concludes the first stage
of America’s Natural Gas Highway® (ANGH), a network of liquefied natural gas
(LNG) truck fueling stations to support long-haul, heavy-duty goods movement
along major interstate corridors throughout the United States.

Speaking at last week’s American Trucking Associations Summit on Natural Gas
in Trucking, Andrew Littlefair, Clean Energy President and CEO, said, “We have
created America’s Natural Gas Highway® to support the growing number of
long-haul truckers and shippers who are deploying factory-built, heavy-duty
trucks powered by natural gas fuel. LNG-fueled trucks can now travel the
country and reap the benefits of fuel cost savings, reduced dependence on
foreign oil, and the lower emissions profile that characterizes this abundant
American resource.”

By the end of 2012, Clean Energy will have completed 70 new LNG truck fuel
stations along highways that link major U.S. metropolitan areas. Many of these
stations are located at existing Pilot-Flying J truck stops. Pilot is the
nation's largest truck-stop operator with more than 550 retail properties in
47 states. In 2013, Clean Energy plans to build 70 to 80 additional LNG fuel
stations adjacent to long-haul trucking routes and around major warehouse
distribution centers in North America. Major highway segments now completed
include, among others, those linking the Southwest Corridor, Los Angeles to
Atlanta, The Texas Triangle, Atlanta to Chicago to Texas, and major corridors
in the Midwest and Northeast. (See below for the list of stations.)

Clean Energy noted that an iPhone app station locator will be available by the
end of the year to complement its web-based locator at
http://www.cnglngstations.com.

The LNG fueling stations coincide with the arrival of new natural gas truck
engines well suited for heavy-duty, over-the-road trucking. At the ATA Summit,
executives from engine manufacturers and original equipment truck
manufacturers such as Cummins-Westport, Kenworth, Peterbilt, Navistar,
Freightliner and Volvo presented their plans to rollout a variety of Class-8
trucks and engine sizes allowing for varied road and driving requirements. Jim
Arthurs, President of Cummins Westport Inc., reiterated the scheduled launch
of the much-anticipated ISX 12 G natural gas engine to begin in Spring 2013
with full production and delivery by Fall 2013.

Presenting at the Natural Gas Summit were executives from all segments of the
trucking industry including the CEOs of the three largest truck stop chains,
natural gas producers ConocoPhillips and Exxon and representatives from some
of the largest shippers and truckers who are already benefiting from
transitioning a portion of their fleets to natural gas. Governor Bill Graves,
President and CEO of the ATA, called the trucking industry’s transition to
natural gas “historic” and compared it to two other major milestones in the
industry – deregulation and the formation of the ATA. ATA Chairman Michael
Card, who is also president of Combined Transport Inc., said, “We are truly at
the cusp of a potential revolutionary change in the trucking industry” as it
moves toward more use of natural gas as a transport fuel.

Clean Energy’s ANGH stations are in addition to the ongoing CNG station
building planned for the company's traditional markets in transit, refuse,
airport/taxi/shuttle and local/regional trucking, which activity accounts for
60 station projects in 2012 and is expected to account for approximately the
same number in 2013.

Currently priced up to $1.50 a gallon lower than gasoline or diesel depending
on local markets, the use of natural gas fuel reduces operating costs for
vehicles and reduces greenhouse gas emissions up to 30% in light-duty vehicles
and 23% in medium to heavy-duty vehicles. The U.S. Department of Energy
reports that 98% of the natural gas consumed in the U.S. is sourced in the
U.S. and Canada, making natural gas a secure North American energy choice.

Clean Energy (Nasdaq: CLNE) is the largest provider of natural gas fuel for
transportation in North America and a global leader in the expanding natural
gas vehicle fueling market. We have operations in compressed natural gas (CNG)
and liquefied natural gas (LNG) vehicle fueling and construction and operation
of natural gas fueling stations. Wholly-owned subsidiaries include IMW
Industries, Ltd., which supplies CNG equipment for vehicle fueling and
industrial applications worldwide; NorthStar, which supplies LNG and liquefied
to compressed natural gas fueling system technologies and equipment, station
construction and operations; BAF Technologies, which provides natural gas
vehicle systems and conversions for taxis, vans, pick-up trucks and shuttle
buses; and Clean Energy Renewable Fuels (CERF), which develops renewable
natural gas (RNG), or biomethane, production facilities in the U.S. For more
