Well I was told by one gas station attendant in OR that the reason you were not allowed to pump your own gas was because it was inflammable. She also told me that you were allowed to pump your own diesel as it is not considered inflammable. This may or may not be the case.

I live a few miles from NJ and everybody goes there for gas because it's .20 or .30 cheaper. They don't let you pump it yourself anywhere in NJ. Today it was $1.799 for reg and $1.999 for super.

I saw a video on gas in Oregon,,, The host told people it was .10 cents cheaper if they went around the back and pumped it themselves... Most people said no thank you, and when asked why? there response was they didn't know how!!

$1.76 in Delta CO..

They will if you are in a classic/exotic car and they are afraid you'll hold them liable for any damages. I hauled a Porsche Carrera GT to New Jersey to deliver to a customer back when I worked for the local dealership. After unloading it, I took it to a gas station to fill it up before delivery. The fuel filler door for that car is over $1,000. After pointing that out, not one gas station attendant was willing to get near it.

I experienced this when driving a truck back from New York. I started to pump my gas and the attendent came running over, stop you can't pump your own. I was like, did I pull into full service or something? He said no everyone in this state has been deemed to dumb and incompetent to pump their own gas by our state government. I said well it's good to know I'm talking to one of the smart ones then, fill er up.

SHOOTS! IT'S GOIN BACK UP! I missed out on the $1.46 (w/discount) now it's $1.61.

I hope it's because of the holiday weekend.

Airhog1,
When I was a kid, helping out at my grandfather's business, that's what I did whenever anyone drove up, pumped the gas, checked the oil, the air pressure for all 4 wheels and wiped the front windows. Heck, sometimes I even got a tip~!!
All we had was regular gas and white gas..Kerosene was was stored in a big ole green tank with a hand crank for, 5 cent a gallon~!!
Happy Holidays to all..

Interesting that it didn't take long for us all to get numbed by $5/gal. gas so that when it drops to below $2/gal, we actually feel like we're getting a deal guess big oil and futures traders have read their psychology books...

Let me get back to my lever and start pecking. Maybe I'll get s'more birdseed...

$1.61 - OMG tht's price gouging ........wait, I was paying $3.96 just a few weeks ago. Go ahead - fill'er up while it's that cheap. I hear that there may be a a new gas tax soon so help pay for all that was promised. May make $3+ gas look good.
