What the Biodiesel Tax Credit Means for Truckstops

You’re probably aware that the biodiesel tax credit (BTC) is worth $1 per gallon and helps lower the cost of biodiesel. You may also know that it was recently reinstated — retroactively for 2018 and 2019, and also through 2022. But how exactly does that benefit truckstops? More

How Can My Travel Center Take Advantage of the Biodiesel Tax Credit?
