Do you pump your own?

Apparently Oregon just changed their laws so that gas stations will not be full serve any longer. The people are outraged:

So the question is: do you pump your own or do you like someone else to do it for you?

    Depends on whether or not I have to pay for said pumping

    There's very few places that pump for you where I live and I never go to those places. When I went to Jersey it weirded me out that I wasn't allowed to pump my own.

    Jersey has the same affect on me.

    Jersey has the same affect on everybody.

    Everyone pumps their own in Switzerland. I can't even think of anywhere I have been in Europe where someone puts petrol in your car for you. From memory it only happened when I lived in the USA.

    I don't mind pumping. I also kind of like the way it smells.

    How do you pump yours from jail, is it any different?

    People in every other state except New Jersey and Oregon have pumped their own gas for years, without exploding. Usually there are signs that provide directions on how disabled folks can get help pumping if needed, so no ADA violations.

    I can't say I enjoy pumping my own gas, but I've had to do it for almost 40 years, so I'm used to it. I don't even know of any stations around here where an attendant will pump your gas for you.

    Where I live, there hasn't been a gas station that wasn't self-serve only in more than 20 years. I've also never encountered one while traveling. I was really shocked to learn from a NJ relative that there were still places where having an attendant pump for you was still an option.
