The fuel tax stickers for each state were phased out in stages. Starting in the early 80’s a couple states got to a consensus on how fuel tax would be handled among them. More states joined as time went on. In 1991 a federal act was passed to make fuel tax universal in all 48 states of the continental US. The deadline for all states to be onboard was September 30, 1996. So there were state fuel tax stickers used in some capacity up until 1996 depending on the part of the country.

As for the license plates, each state used to require a commercial vehicle to be registered in that state to drive through it. So a truck would need a plate for each state that it would travel through. In 1973 the International Registration Plan was passed which started with just a few states, but gradually all other states as well as Canada and Mexico joined in. Under this plan, only one license plate would be needed and a commercial vehicle could travel through any of these states.

In the 50's and 60's it was common to have a lot of separate license plates. By the mid 70's it was common for one license plate along with a bingo plate.
