    Have always known that Oregon and New Jersey would not let you pump your own gas.

    Have been on trips to Oregon the last 3 years and gotten used to it, but the first time I had forgotten and made the mistake of reaching for the pump on my own. LOL The attendant stopped me and reminded me that Oregon was different.

    This new law only affects counties with less than 40,000 people and reports say it will affect a handful of gas stations. The rest of the state will remain full service.

    The panic was created when someone created a poll asking residents what they thought about the entire state doing away with full service. Some of the reactions were priceless.

    Actually, I live in Oregon and this is nonsense. No one cares because we drive electric cars.

    They let me pump my own gas when I fill up the Camaro.

    Isn’t New Jersey the only other state that bans self pumping?

    I thought self pumping was illegal everywhere?
    At least in public.

    All I know is that whenever the attendant pumped gas for me in NJ, I usually got short-changed. Several times I caught it. :?

    Usually pump my own gas here in Oregon because the attendants take forever to get to your car. Know a bunch of people here that have never pumped gas in their life, though, and it's entertaining watching them at the pump looking at it like they're solving some complex algorithm.

    I've fueled up in Oregon a few times and I always wondered if I should tip the attendant.

    Well, they do have some hot female attendants, so use you better judgement. :D

    Most of the locals we have talked to never tip attendants. We have driven to Oregon three straight years and the last two we brought a bunch of $2 bills with us and tipped the attendant each time. They were genuinely thankful and you could tell that they were not used to getting a tip.
