Gas cards are given to employees for company use. It is the employees responsibility to make sure they have it with them. Just like it is the employees responsibility to check and maintain gas levels in the company vehicle when on the job not the bosses. When OP's boss said everything they needed for the job was in the truck the boss meant all the equipment and supplies needed for the job not the amount of gas or the gas card. It is the OP's fault for not checking the gas level.
This is totally OP's fault. The boss was talking about all the parts needed to do the job were included in the truck. I'm sure the boss assumed the employee was smart enough to know that a normal part of driving a vehicle is to monitor the fuel level. It sounds like the OP must be pretty stupid to not check the fuel level.
It is your fault . Trucks have a gas gauge and they tell you how much gas is in the vehicle. Your boss said everything you need was in the truck . He was talking about tools he probably thought that you had enough common sense to check the gas gauge and add gas as needed. It's your fault for not checking and for not having your gas card. Take some responsibility OP
Sometimes I really wonder how people as stupid as your boss even get the position of being the boss :/
I don't understand what's so hard about double checking things. Better safe than sorry but your boss is a douche
