New Law OKs self-serve at rural Oregon gas stations, but will stations make the change?

It’s almost like Oregon is coming into the 21st century! NewImage

But only out in the country where they do not have people to pump gas for you. In the cities: you will continue to have to be waited on (or, as is my experience, not be waited on). 

Gas stations in two central Oregon counties will continue to pump gas for customers despite a new law allowing self-serve gasoline in rural counties that takes effect in a few days.

Employees at several stations in Crook and Jefferson counties said they are unaware of any plans to change to self-service, the Bulletin reported .

Others told the newspaper they were unaware that the new law takes effect Monday.

Oregon is currently one of two states that does not allow customers to pump their gas.

A law passed by the Legislature in May and signed into law by Gov. Kate Brown in June will allow Oregon counties with 40,000 residents or less to deviate from that.
