Because most leaking underground storage tank (LUST) sites are contaminated by gasoline, the following constituents of gasoline are the typical contaminants of concern of LUST sites. Benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, and xylenes (referred to as the BTEX compounds) are the most common hazardous components of gasoline leaks. In , Congress created the Leaking Underground Storage Tank (LUST) Trust Fund to address petroleum releases from federally regulated underground storage tanks (USTs) by amending Subtitle I of the Solid Waste Disposal Act. In , the Energy Policy Act expanded eligible uses of the Trust Fund to include certain leak prevention activities.
