Oregonians Come to Terms with Pumping Their Own Gas

Oregonians Come to Terms with Pumping Their Own Gas

That all changed when House Bill 2482 - which was passed previous year by Gov. Kate Brown - went into effect on Monday, January 1st, 2018: A day that will live in infamy (but only if you're an Oregonian).

However, a law passed in May now allows or counties with 40,000 residents or less to let drivers put gasoline in their cars themselves.

For what it's worth, KGW anchor Brenda Braxton admitted in August 2017 that she had just pumped her own gas for the very first time in her life.

Beginning Monday, Oregonians in certain parts of the state have been allowed to pump their own gas.

Up until Monday, January 1st, OR was the only other state that didn't allow its residents to pump their own gas. Customers can only pump their own gas between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. I will literally park at the pump and wait until someone pumps my gas. "But it does provide a lot of jobs". However, in two states laws forbid you from placing a pump inside your own gas tank and filling it up. "It was throwback to older times when we actually had SERVICE stations instead of gas stations".

The counties affected are: Lake, Curry, Union, Hood River, Grant, Jefferson, Morrow, Baker, Tillamook, Wheeler, Gilliam, Crook, Sherman, Wasco, Clatsop, Wallowa, Harney, and Malheur.

Dakota Browning, a gas attendant said, "Probably a little easier now cause you can say go right ahead!"

Angry Oregonians the butt of jokes as new law forces some citizens to pump their own gas for first time

Thomas Downs, who owns a small restaurant and gas station in Harney County in southeast OR, testified during a committee hearing past year that the bill would allow him to focus on other services his business provides.

"I just [have] to learn how to because I've never done it before", Shaylynn Hase of Hood River said.

"I go to work at 5 in the morning".

Corina Wright, manager of Towne Pump & Pantry in Prineville, also told The Bulletin that their attendants will also continue to pump gas for motorists. I think I can easily guess the topic.

For those still anxious about how to do it, Lifehacker posted this helpful article to walk you through it.

Other managers said they would have employees on hand to teach drivers how to pump their gas. I'll do it again. "There's going to be some gold in there", one person wrote.
