Oregon Just Made It Legal To Pump Your Own Gas And People Are Freaking Out

By Mark Pygas

Oregon introduced a new law on Monday that will allow motorists to pump their own gas in nearly half of the state's 36 counties. Oregon and New Jersey are the only two states that bar people from pumping their own gas, a measure introduced decades ago to protect the jobs of gas station attendants. 

House Bill 2482 was passed last year by Gov. Kate Brown, and it's led to some mixed reactions. 

Local news station KTVL CBS 10 News decided to ask their readers what they thought of the new law on Facebook. And as Twitter user @Kristebtipsy pointed out, there are some real gems among the more than 18,000 comments.
