Oregon state bill looks to ban diesel in state by 2028

March 10, 2021 |

In Oregon, CDL Life reports Republicans in the state’s House of Representatives are lashing out against a bill brought by Democrat Rep. Karin Power that seeks to ban the sale of diesel at fueling stations in the state beginning in 2024. The bill proposes a schedule to phase out the sale of diesel, beginning with the Portland metro area in 2024 and culminating in a statewide ban by 2028. House Republicans claim there are no other viable alternatives for heavy trucking and industry to replace diesel fuel, which would end up destroying the state’s economy.
