    I loved that about Oregon! You can always tell the out of staters--they dare to pump their own. Is that a Plaid Pantry station in the pic lol?
    I never understood the rational behind it though; what about at a Costco/Sam's club? is there a dude there too to fill your tank?

    It's the same in all of the country of Mexico. You cannot pump your own gas. icon_biggrin.gif Looks like BP needs to take their own advice.

    Likewise in Chile: you are not trusted to pump your own.

    The idea of it apparently is that having employees pump gas instead of customers is better for the economy, because gas stations will have to employ more people to pump the gas.

    Well, at least BP is honest with their signage, so they have that going for them, which is nice.

    You actually can, especially in the early early mornings when there aren't attendants.

    Does this mean you have to tip a guy to pump your gas? If so i would prefer to do it myself b/c afterall its rather simple.
