We can't remember a time in Oregon when this wasn't a topic of hot debate. Oregon is one of just two states where drivers aren't allowed to pump their own gas. (New Jersey is the other.) Native Oregonians and many who live on the west side of the state love it, and wouldn't have it any other way. Full-service gas stations, they argue, provide good-paying jobs and are convenient for the consumer. Many transplants, though, find the idea mystifying. Those who live in rural areas of Oregon where gas stations can be hard to staff have successfully argued in recent years that they should be exempt from the state law requiring an attendant to pump gas.

At least Oregon isn't alone.

In 2017, Oregon lawmakers passed a bill allowing limited self-service gas in rural areas of the state.
