Oregonians outraged by self serve gas stations

After the new gas pump law took effect, many Oregonians were anxious about pumping their own gas, so internet trolls stepped in to let them know how it's done.

The latest thing out of OR is that as of January 1, it is now legal to offer self-service gasoline, leaving New Jersey as the last state that prohibits self-service gas.

The post by an Oregon TV station has been shared more than 20,000 times with more than 18,000 comments. "I don't want to smell like gasoline!" one woman said.

Oregon House Bill 2482 was passed in May and allows people living in Oregon counties with 40,000 residents or less to pump their own petrol.

One Deputy Killed In Denver Shooting
A SWAT team and bomb squad truck were also reportedly on the scene, where officers first arrived at 5:13 a.m. Deputies were later called back to the scene, and were given a key to enter the apartment.

Others took the opportunity to ridicule the hysteria over self-service gas: "Pumped my own gas my whole life and now my hands have literally melted down to my wrists".

At her station, an attendant will still be around to help those who may not know the way.

The new law leaves New Jersey as the only state in the country that requires an attendant to pump gas for customers, The Bulletin stated. Had to pump my own flipping gas! It's ludicrous to think that most of the State's population is legitimately terrified of pumping gas on their own.

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. But in OR, where until now it has been illegal for people to touch the petrol pumps themselves, the change has caused the general public to collectively lose their shit in the only way they know how: in the Facebook comments. A post on the Facebook of local news station KTVL asking locals what they reckon about the new change has attracted some... interesting responses.

Medford, a city of more than 70,000 in Jackson County, has too many people to qualify for self-service.
