Yes, it blew down a large hanging partition on my porch that I mended and rehung via different type of hooks. 3rd time it's happened. Instead of an eyebolt on a teacup-type open hook, I connected 2 eyebolts with a "quick link" that screws shut. Now the wind can howl and those will not fly off again!

No thank God, we are somewhat protected by hills around us. Well it did blow my garbage can over after they emptied it. LOL

Nothing out of the ordinary. These winds are nothing new. I have lived here all of my 60 years. I've seen worse. This is typical

Yes definitely, I prefer to, I always help the attendant and take the nozzle out myself so they do not spill any gas on my rigs!

I've pumped my own gas all my life until I moved here in 2018. Waiting in line for someone to do something I'm capable of doing is inefficient. As long as it doesn't cost job loss, I'd rather do it myself.

That's the trouble. I'm too afraid to lose my job. I've made more money at other places, but this is the only company I've found willing to work with me on my schedule for my career training.

Absolutely!. It would get done in a more efficient way and more carefully because I care about my own rig and don't want the gas dripping on the paint.

Gasoline won't affect your paint job. I've used it to clean off tree sap, works great.

Absolutely!! I have lived in other states for 65 years and always had to pump my own gas and I prefer it because it speeds things up. It makes for a much slower process having to wait for attendants to finish with 1 - 2 cars ahead of you when you could be doing it yourself!! Good to have the choice!

And, contrary to what many on the other side are saying, they are NOT taking away attendants for those who don't want to pump their own gas... just providing a choice to do it yourself for those of us who want to.

I doubt very much you would get through the line any quicker. If the attendants are that slow find another station. Maybe you should have stayed in the other state.

In Culver we usually do since we have 1 gas station and they only have 1 person working the store.

I'm an attendant. I doubt I'd lose my job if self-serve was law, but I don't want to roll that dice. I have the resume to work for higher-paying companies-I have before-but this company is the only one I've found willing to give me the time off I need for my non-college training for my dream career.

I work on cars 5 days a week so sometimes i don't like to smell like gas. I got my start pumping gas. Also, after working all day, i don't always have the energy to pump my own gas. And my dear wife has no idea how to pump gas and has no desire to know, so she shouldn't be forced to.

The push for this legislation seems more rooted in the benefit to station owners rather than the general public. If passed, prices won't be any lower at the pump. Besides, not pumping your own gas is pretty great.

I have found throughout history that self pumping does not lower gas prices. I prefer not to pump my own gas.

There is no benefit to me to pump my own fuel. I do not want smelly hands. If they get rid of the Attendants prices will not go down. We need to keep it the way it is. There is no shortage of people who want to work at a gas station. There is also no shortage of greedy station owners.

People need jobs and the few pennies per gallon it costs to pay them to pump gas is irrelevant. Most people waste that much on junk food every day. Gas tax in Oregon is about $.56-.58 a gallon. Gas prices fluctuate so much it makes little difference what it costs to give someone a job.

When in third grade we had an exchange student from Scotland. We exchanged letters with what would have been his classmates in Aberdeen. It was exciting learning about people's lives in other worlds. I continued communication with my "Pen Pal" through high school but then lost touch with her.
