Oregonians Are Struggling With Pumping Their Own Gas!
A new law in Oregon allows self-service gas pumping, which has long been handled by service attendants. The new law has taken effect spinning some Oregonians into fits of rage!
Comments have flooded social media sites with Oregonians upset at the new law. We've compiled some of the best rants for you!
“I don’t even know HOW to pump gas and I am 62, native Oregonian … I say NO THANKS! I don’t want to smell like gasoline!”
“I’ve lived in this state all my life and I REFUSE to pump my own gas … This a service only qualified people should perform. I will literally park at the pump and wait until someone pumps my gas.”
“I go to work at 5 in the morning. Not a lot of people at the gas pumps at that time in the morning. And yes, I will not feel safe pumping my own gas … Not to mention it’s freezing and rainy. So thank you to all who voted to change it. You have now taken away a nice luxury that most of us enjoyed.”
“Many people are not capable of knowing how to pump gas and the hazards of not doing it correctly. Besides I don’t want to go to work smelling of gas when I get it on my hands or clothes. I agree Very bad idea.”
“Yuck! Pumping my [own] fuel in freezing temperatures and handling a nasty ole fuel nozzle that 50 other people have touched that day (and who knows what cooties are on there), no thank you. It’s nice to not have to pump your own fuel.”
I'm not sure if the comments are in jest or not, but it seems some Oregonians are up in arms over the new law.
The good news, citizens in other states are stepping in to help Oregon adjust to pumping their own gas.
