Oregon Considers Allowing Grown Adults the Privilege of Pumping Their Own Gas
Believe it or not there are two states in the union where it is illegal to pump your own gas. The last time I filled up in New Jersey I forgot. A guy quickly explained to me that I could not fuel my own car.
Thanks to a 1949 state law, only a gas station employee with one day’s training and a signed certificate from a manager is able to gas up cars. Doing so without the proper qualifications could net one fines as high as $500.
