I use [http://pacificpride.com|Pacific Pride]. It's a commercial fueling brand with many truck accessible fueling locations (info is available on their website...some sites aren't for trucks).
 
In south central PA (Lancaster/Harrisburg/Carlisle area), where I normally fuel, I usually pay around 15 to 20 cents less than the cash price at the truck stops in the area.
 
There is no fee to get, or maintain, a card. If you fuel at a franchise other than the one your card is through there is some sort of additional transaction fee, but it still won't be as expensive as buying fuel at the truck stop. So it's best to get your card through a franchisee from where you will buy most of your fuel. But either way you're probably going to spend less than buying it at a truck stop even with a discount card.
 
I also get an additional discount (I think 2 cents per gallon) when I pay my monthly bill within 15 days. Which isn't hard since I set up automatic payment.
 
My card is through [http://www.worleyobetz.com|Worley & Obetz] since they have locations in Middletown, Elizabethtown, and Lancaster, PA. Places I drive through very often. You can find a franchisee near you on the pacificpride.com website.

''MyMy rant about NASTC...
Everyone that joins NASTC does so for the fuel card. However, NASTC has some huge hurdles in the way of joining to get that card.
 
To get the NASTC fuel card you have to join NASTC which requires you attend a mandatory "class" in person that is held once a month in TN and some truck shows. That right there is a huge cost and inconvenience. Then you have to pay a $250 fee for the card. So, even if you paid the same amount using a NASTC discount card don't forget to factor in the $250 fee plus the expense of attending the mandatory "class" (according to other members of letstruck.com the mandatory "class" is nothing more than a sales pitch for their other offerings and wasn't found to be useful. search nastc and other key words in the forums).
