Hi Guys

I read this headline the other day:

"Peco Initiates Three Prong Strategy For Dealing with Fuel Costs"

What does a "prong strategy" mean?

Thank you very much!

    The phrase is "three prong". A strategy that has "three prongs". A prong is like one of the tines of a fork. It's a metaphor which means that the strategy has three different methods or approaches which will be applied (usually) simultaneously.
