Let's help OR learn how to pump gas, Tennessee

Oregonians Come to Terms with Pumping Their Own Gas

Despite local residents' outrage, the law change only affects stations in OR counties with populations of 40,000 OR lower, and does not legally require the stations to switch to self-service - with some reportedly saying they will continue to help pump petrol for their customers. And this week we saw them react to a new self-service law that permits them to pump their own gas.

The CBS affiliate in Medford took to Facebook to ask their viewers to weigh in on the change, the post went viral, garnering some 43,000 comments, and many of those commenters voiced displeasure at having to pump their own gas.

One woman wrote "I don't even know HOW to pump gas and I'm 62, native Oregonian".

"I say No too many creeper out there An it will take a lot of jobs away they need their jobs and I don't feel safe out there ethier!" Some of the concerns include smelling like gas and not being qualified to pump their own gas.

"I grew up, born and raised in Washington, and I think it's silly that we can't pump our gas, or couldn't before", Andrew Hoggate of Lyle, Washington said.

The other responses at the local news station's Facebook page are hilarious.

OR and New Jersey are the only states that require gas stations to have attendants. "On the skills spectrum, pumping gas is closer to "urinating by yourself" than it is to 'properly eating a lobster, ' or 'building a model rocket, '" writes Jason Torchinsky at Jalopnik. Many people are not capable of knowing how to pump gas and the hazards of not doing it correctly.

In the meantime, while the rest of us point and laugh, maybe don't proclaim you're a better state than the rest of us for a while. Numerous commenters were concerned about the hazards of pumping their own gas like.

It's a change from the state's decades-long history of having attendants pump gas for drivers. In at least one rural county, co-op members are issued cards that allow them to pump their own gas any time of day. Personally, I've never not pumped my own petrol.

Let us first deal with the actual change in the law, originally put in place in 1951 for a number of reasons. Yes, these jobs are low wage, but they still can get people employed overall.
