Oregonians and New Jerseyians and Pumping Gas

GretchenGretchen AdministratorPosts: 10,840Moderators Curl Virtuoso
Ok, so I read somewhere where residents of these two states don't pump their own gas. Attendants still do it. But Oregon just enacted some law allowing certain Oregon residents to pump their own. 

Is this true? CRAZY!!!!

    I still go to a full service station in my town (in PA) where they pump your gas and wash your windshield. : ) And it's the same price as self serve places. I've been going to this same station since I was 16. And another plus, this company only uses domestic oil, nothing from the Middle East.
    I only pump my own gas when I have no other choice. I don't think people should pump their own gas, for a lot of reasons. It's dangerous and people can be stupid. It takes jobs away from people. You are basically working for a company/corporation for free. They are just making bigger profits by not having to pay employees. You are getting no benefit from it other than maybe it saves you a few seconds of time. 
    I also refuse to use self serve aisles in stores for the same reasons (other than it's not too dangerous to check out your own groceries. haha.) 
    And yes, it's still illegal to pump your own gas in NJ. They are smart.

    The comments are hilarious. I roared at the NASCAR tweet. 
    It's just such a foreign concept to most of us. I think the last time I had an attendant pump my gas was in 1984.  
    Nonetheless, I will be in Oregon later this month, in a rental car, and I am going to leave my butt in my warm rental car seat and let the helpful attendant refill my tank. :)

    Well, in all seriousness, this law only changes for rural counties, so be sure you have a full tank of gas if its late. I've driven back from Califonia and by the time I'm around Corvallis (2 hours south of Porltand) I was hard pressed to find a gas station that is open, even off the Interstate. I learned to fill up when I can when it's late in Oregon.

    I don't pump my own gas, never have. Luckily there are a few full serve stations in our town. I feel there is a safety issue, especially for women. The thought of pulling into a gas station on a dark night and getting out to pump gas makes me feel vulnerable. :/

    The thought of running out of gas on a dark night because all the gas stations are closed due to a law prohibiting ordinary citizen from pumping their own gas makes me feel more vulnerable. As a woman. That is the significance of this law.

    I live in NJ and had to teach my son how to pump gas while on a road trip.  With the super cold weather it is nice to have your gas pumped without getting out of the car.

    I live in New Jersey and I don't know how to pump gas, lol.  Visited my sister once in New York State and sat in my car like a chump, waiting to be served.
