Detailed Description of Weaver's Motor Fuels Tax Minute, Episode 18


Leanne: Happy New Year 2023 everybody, and welcome to Weaver's Motor Fuels Tax Minute, where we talk all things motor fuel. This week we're going to be talking about…


Kelly: Hold on, hold on, hold on. Wait a second. Before we start dealing with these heavy topics, what if we start including some motor fuel tax basics?


Emilda: Okay, that could work. What were you thinking, Kelly?


Kelly: So oftentimes, some of our colleagues in the motor fuel industry never really had a chance to deal with some of the motor fuel tax basic questions because we all get so busy. For example, like why is truck mode coach a “J” when it could be a “T”? Can ethanol actually go through a pipeline? I know this may come as a surprise to both of you, but not everyone grew up hoping to be a motor fuel tax expert as a kid. And just think about it, how great would it be for our listeners to have a quick motor fuel minute they can have their traders listen to when they get asked again and again, why is title transfer necessary?


Leanne: All right, you've sold me. I like this idea. And possibly as an additional bonus for our listeners, they can drop questions in the comments or send us a private message on our LinkedIn page, or to our emails, about motor fuel topics that they want us to talk about. It can be a question they've been wondering about, or one they constantly get asked, and if their topic is picked, they can even get some Weaver swag.


Emilda: I like that. I really do. Does it really have to be about a motor fuel topic?


Leanne: I don't think so! As our listeners have seen, Weaver's got a wide range of experience, and even though we love motor fuel tax, we can always bring on a guest speaker to address any oil and gas industry question that comes our way. Things like sales tax, transfer pricing, income tax, property tax and a lot more.


Kelly: All right, ladies, I'm liking this plan already. So let's get back to the basics, back to the basics.


Emilda: Well, me too. Maybe, Kelly, without the dance.


Leanne: Let’s just skip the dance, but let's bring on the knowledge.


Emilda: : I agree. Throughout 2023, in addition to our guest speakers and our usual updates, we will start incorporating some motor fuel basics and allow our listeners a chance to get some swag.

That's this week's Motor Fuel Minute. Join us next week. Thank you.


Leanne: Thank you
