Oregonians Are Freaking Out Now That They Can Pump Their Own Gas, And We’re All Confused

Oh, Oregon. The state just introduced a new law that will allow motorists to pump their own gas in half of their 36 counties. Oregon and New Jersey are the only states that don’t allow people to pump their own gas. So naturally, KTVL took a quick internet poll to see how the people would react to pumping their own gas… and it didn’t go well.

A local news station asked their readers what they thought of the new law and there are some absolute gems among the thousands of comments. For people who’ve lived in Oregon their whole lives and never pumped their own gas before, it’s apparently life-changing, and not for the good.
