NATSO is joined by fuel retailers, biodiesel producers and consumers.
NATSO applauded lawmakers for introducing legislation that would extend the biodiesel tax credit.
Founded in 1960, NATSO is the professional trade association representing the U.S. travel plaza and truckstop industry. NATSO serves as the voice in Washington, D.C., for off-highway fuel retailers.
“This legislation underscores the fact that the biodiesel tax credit has strong Democratic support in the House of Representatives,” said NATSO Vice President of Government Affairs David Fialkov. “The authors of this legislation understand that the biodiesel tax credit helps create jobs, reduce the transportation sector’s greenhouse gas emissions, and enables fuel retailers to offer more competitively priced diesel fuel, which in turn lowers the price of all consumer goods that are moved by truck. The biodiesel tax credit has bipartisan support in both chambers of Congress. It’s time to get this done.”
NATSO is joined in sentiment by fuel retailers, biodiesel producers and consumers.
Advanced Biofuels Association (ABFA) President Michael McAdams
“ABA’s membership is grateful and will work vigorously to support the bipartisan legislation introduced today. This legislation is crucial to ensuring that biodiesel producers can continue to create jobs and make a product that substantially improves the transportation industry’s greenhouse gas footprint, all while lowering fuel prices. Producers win, retailers win, and most importantly, consumers win. Everybody wins with this bill.”
American Trucking Associations (ATA) Vice President Glen Kedzie
“ATA applauds the bipartisan group of House lawmakers for introducing this legislation. The biodiesel blender tax credit results in lower fuel costs for truckers throughout the country.”
National Association of Convenience Stores (NACS) Director of Government Relations Paige Anderson
“NACS members around the country have used the tax credit to offer biodiesel as an affordable option for consumers. We applaud the bipartisan group of Members of Congress for introducing a two-year extension of the credit so fuel retailers and marketers can include biodiesel in their fuel portfolio in the near future.”
Society of Independent Gasoline Marketers of America (SIGMA) President Brad Puryear
“SIGMA strongly supports this legislation, which would immediately incentivize fuel marketers to buy and blend additional gallons of biofuels. This legislation promotes American energy independence and cleaner energy. The biodiesel tax credit also leads to more competitive pricing of diesel fuel at the pump, which benefits American consumers.”
