          Depends on what version of AI you have if you have CS 4 the it is easy

           

          select the same or a different color on the side or location of the gradient you want to go transparent in the gradient panel and in the gradient pane lower the opacity setting to zero.

            In CS 3 or earlier you need to make an opacity mask out of a gradient filled object.

             

            You fill one object with a solid color say and another on top with a gradient from black to white select both and in the transparency panel from the drop down menu choose the make an opacity mask you have options to clip and the invert it as well.
