I grew up in a somewhat-rural suburb of California where we pump our own gas. So it came to my surprise when I learned about the recent law passed in Oregon, which allowed people in rural areas of the state to pump their own gas. Wait, were Oregonians not pumping themselves before this? Oddly enough they were, in fact, not allowed to.
I recall moving to Washington years ago, where my path took me through Oregon, and I had to inevitably stop for gas. It was cold and miserable outside, but to my surprise, there was a gas attendant there ready and willing to fill my tank in that frozen tundra. It completely blew my mind, but I refused to let the guy pump my gas, for fear of my mancard being revoked.
Oregonians, on the other hand, truly believe that hell has frozen over. Here is the fury that has been unleashed by the locals in the NorthWest in response to the new law.
