There are only two states in the country where residents cannot pump their own gas. But now that is going to change.
Oregon lawmakers voted to end its 72-year ban on self-serving gas. House Bill 2426 will require half of Oregon’s gas pumps to be open for people who want assistance and half for people who want to do it themselves.
The bill passed the House in March and has to be signed into law by the governor of Oregon. It would take effect immediately once signed.
This will leave New Jersey as the only state requiring attendants to pump gasoline.
