Question about fuel tanks on the property

Michael Moore is looking for information regarding fuel tanks on his property. This comment came in response to a June 2004 story.

“I have three tanks in my back yard. When I purchased the new home in 2002, I was told that the tanks in the yard were for my personal use. I found out last winter that the tanks help supply the neighborhood. There are three tanks in my back yard that or a 1,000 gallons each. They are about 25 feet away from my house and about 10 feet from the property line. Where should I go to get the regulations and answers to this problem? Even though the state has their own set of regulations, can they operate outside federal regulation?”

Feedback is certainly welcome.
