People Freak Out After Oregon Strikes Law Banning Self-Service Gas Stations

In case you haven’t heard Oregon is in a stat of of crisis! Effective Jan 1st they pump their OWN gas!!

People are raising Cain on social media about a law in Oregon making it legal for citizens to pump their own gas.

A law passed through Oregon’s legislature in May and signed into law in June will allow counties with 40,000 residents or fewer to pump their own gas. Oregonians are not pleased about the change.

The law, which will take effect Jan. 1, has created a minor firestorm in rural parts of Oregon, where full-service gas stations have been the norm since 1951. A local CBS affiliate in Medford, Ore., asked its viewers on Facebook about the new law – the responses have ranged from anger to confusion.


How do you live 62 years and NOT know how to pump gas?

The rest of the USA has been doing it for decades This little snowflake is in meltdown

What about from your warm car to the store or into work?? Seriously?

Well isn’t this one special


Seniors, disabled, people with children have been managing just fine, toughen up buttercup you can do it.

Oregon reformed the law in 2015. The change allowed motorists to pump their own fuel at night, but the state is still one of two in the country that ban self-service. Motorists in New Jersey, for instance, face stiff penalties for touching pumps – fines range between $50 and $250 for the first offense and up to $500 for subsequent offenses.
