Self-serve gas may come to rural Oregon

Thursday, June 11, 2015by  Jon Osterberg

A 64-year ban on pumping your own gasoline may be ending in Oregon.
     On June 11, legislators passed a bill that would allow motorists to pump their own gas at night in rural counties with fewer than 40,000 residents.
     If Gov. Kate Brown signs the bill into law, that means you’ll be able to fuel your own car in cities like Astoria, Ontario, LaGrande, The Dalles, Tillamook, Prineville, Baker City, and Burns.
     Oregon is only one of two states – New Jersey is the other – that restrict self-service gas. Read The Oregonian story.
