I already do. Since the state passed a law a while back for come counties I have been. They also did it again for the whole state during 2020 because of COVID and that ruling was never repealed. Allot of people don't know that but the gas stations do so they don't care if I do.

It is easy! I would be faster than the slow, overworked guy who spills gas on my car.

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.

It's hard to feel patriotic when a small percentage of people enforce laws on women, jeopardizing their lives. The "Supreme Court" is a joke. Now families will fall sick from polluted air and water without the safety net of regulations, jeopardizing our future for the profiteering of big companies.
