Nearly a year since self-service fueling began in Oregon,
initial reports suggest drivers have it ;gured out. Oregon, which
along with New Jersey was one of only two states to prohibit
self-service fueling, passed legislation in 2015 to allow the practice on a limited basis, beginning in January. Speci;cally, only
fuel retailers in counties with populations of 40,000 or fewer can
offer self-service fueling, and only between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m.
Eighteen Oregon counties, most in the eastern half of the
state, have populations low enough to qualify. New Jersey legislators introduced two bills in 2015 that would have lifted that
state’s self-service fueling ban, which had been in place 70 years;
however, neither came up for a vote.
