Fuel Retailers' Statement on President Trump's Decision to Reject Plan to Revise Renewable Fuel Standard

ALEXANDRIA, Va., June 6, 2018 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- NATSO, the national association representing travel plazas and truckstops, the Society of Independent Gasoline Marketers of America and the National Association of Convenience Stores applaud President Trump for rejecting a proposal to revise the Renewable Fuel Standard in a manner that would have greatly harmed fuel retailers and their customers.

"We thank President Trump for his leadership and for keeping his promise to protect the Renewable Fuel Standard. The proposal that was presented to the President yesterday was designed to undercut the RFS and he saw right through it. This entire process has made clear that the only rational way to reform the RFS is in Congress through the legislative process. The retail fuels community looks forward to being an active participant in that process."

Founded in 1960, NATSO represents the industry on legislative and regulatory matters; serves as the official source of information on the diverse travel plaza and truckstop industry; provides education to its members; conducts an annual convention and trade show; and supports efforts to generally improve the business climate in which its members operate.

More than one of five dollars spent inside a convenience store are for foodservice purchases.
