The nation’s truckstops and travel plazas are among the largest distributors of diesel fuel and gasoline, providing fuel to the nations truckers.
NATSO and the NATSO Foundation closely monitor regulatory action and industry trends that affect the supply and distribution of fuel. From biodiesel tax credits to underground storage tank requirements, NATSO and the NATSO Foundation are on the forefront of industry issues.

Those advances will take decisions out of the hands of drivers and leave them to the vehicle and could, potentially, make driverless trucks a thing of the future.
