AUSTIN – Gas pumps across Texas must prominently display the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR) consumer information stickers by Dec. 1, 2020.
The stickers have a Texas shape and include information about the amount of state and federal taxes charged for every gallon of fuel sold, as well as a telephone number and a QR code that consumers can use to file a complaint with TDLR regarding the quality or quantity of fuel that was sold. Merchants must also remove the old Texas Department of Agriculture stickers once the TDLR stickers are installed.
“Having the TDLR sticker on the pump will help consumers notify the correct agency and reduce delays if they need to report a suspected credit card skimmer or other issue,” said Brian E. Francis, TDLR executive director.
The Motor Fuel Metering and Quality program was transferred to TDLR in September 2019 and the program completed its transition as of Aug. 31, 2020. The new stickers have been available to merchants since January 2020 and can be ordered online.
