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."
