The declarations apply to drivers hauling gasoline, diesel and aviation fuel. In South Dakota, Gov. Kristi Noem's order points to low inventories and outages of fuel, while the "return of normal supply flows to fuel terminals in South Dakota is not expected until early fall."

The South Dakota waiver will expire no later than midnight, Aug. 16, and the Wyoming waiver will expire no later than Aug. 20.
