Oregon considers ending self-serve gas ban in rural areas

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 05/08/2015 - 08:16
By Shelby Sebens PORTLAND, Ore. (Reuters) - Oregon, one of only two U.S. states where drivers cannot legally pump their own gasoline, is considering a bill that would allow for some self-serve stations, mostly in rural areas, lawmakers said on Thursday. The Oregon House has unanimously passed a bill that would allow limited self-service stations, and the bill is expected to be heard in a Senate business and transportation committee later this month, state officials said. The legislation would allow gas stations in rural Oregon with limited hours to let drivers pay with a credit card and pump their own gas when the stations are unstaffed, said state Representative Cliff Bentz, the bill's sponsor. Bentz pointed to several stretches of road, such as a 150-mile jaunt from Burns to the Nevada border, where gas stations are sparse.
