So a new law went into effect on January 1, 2018 which ALLOWS people in Oregon to pump their own gas.
It doesn't require them to pump their own gas, it just allows the people who run gas stations in Oregon to choose whether or not they want to pay someone $12.00 an hour to pump gas.
Until this law went into effect, Oregon and, I believe, New Jersey required gas station attendants to actually pump the gas.
OK, I can see the possibility of wide-spread catastrophe if you let these people anywhere near a gas pump.
Apparently this kind of freedom of choice was met with quite a bit of resistance, from people either too stupid to pump gas, or too entitled to lower themselves to performing such a menial task.

All I can say is, "Wow", but not jwoww.
