Maybe I'm just to obtuse for my own good, but why in the world do you have a LAW that says you cannot pump your own gas.
Because it's Oregon for God's sake...they do everything bass-ackwards across the river!!
They use the arguments of safety, but in reality it's a convienient way to create make-work jobs. And to be honest, I don't mind it so much except that you have loafers at some stations and have to wait several minutes at the pump for them to show up and start the pump.

Next thing you know, we'll have to pay someone to mow our yards since lawn mowers are unsafe without special training.
