Do you?

Do you pump your own gas? I have lived in Oregon for most of my life and only learned to pump my own gas when I lived in California for three years. I never think anything about someone else doing it for me. When my husbands friend was here he was shocked that my husband didn't pump our gas and he let the worker do it for us. I explained to him that it is against the law in Oregon to pump your own gas and that you can be fined up to $500 for doing it. I think there is only one other State that you are not allowed to pump your own gas in. Do other States still have the option of full serve gas stations anymore?

    I am used to it but I much prefer to do it myself. And I hate that you have to remember to go to the gas station before they close.

      Here in Oregon they can fine you up to $500 if they catch you pumping your own gas.

        Oh man. I miss that. I would love to find a gas station where they did that for you. I have had the occassional help when a kid is screaming at Sam's Club or HyVee (if somebody is already out there)..but they also have certain pumps where you can push a button to get help (handicapped and mom).

        No I don't think you are allowed to tip because legally you can't pump your own gas. I know people who have tried to tip them and they always say they can't take it.

        That is the crazy thing about it. You don't pay until AFTER they pump your gas, and there are many situations where it would be so easy to leave without paying.
