New Jersey is now a gas anomaly.
As of Jan. 1, when a law in Oregon went into effect allowing motorists in counties with fewer than 40,000 people to pump their own gas, New Jersey remains the only state to mandate that fuel be pumped by gas station attendants.
When Oregon television station WKTVL posted on Facebook about the change in the fuel-pump law and asked its viewers to weigh in, some of the 55,000 comments went viral.
One commenter wrote that she didn't want to get out of her car "with transients around." Another said: "Many people are not capable of knowing how to pump gas and the hazards of not doing it correctly."
The internet was not so kind to these commenters.
"Don't know about you, but I don't stop at a gas station unless I'm certain at least a couple of murders were committed there," said another.
Others who have experienced both sides of the pump tried to assuage fears.
And then, there were those who warned Oregonians of the dangers of self service.
