Has Oregon blown up or burned down yet?

As of January 1st, 15 of Oregon's 36 counties will allow self-service gas pumps. Oregon and New Jersey were the only two states left where it was illegal to pump your own gas. (And now I have to wonder if @NJChicaa knows how to operate a gas pump ) A post by KTVL CBS 10 News, Medford, has 'gone viral', with many people poking fun at Oregonians about the subject. I have to admit...I didn't say anything there...but mainly because I was too busy laughing while reading the comments. If you have some spare time, you should check this out:

I have absolutely no idea how to pump gas. When I went to college in CT, I would fill up my SUV at the very last service station in NJ, drive around for the week, and then have *just* enough gas to get back over the border into NJ at the end of the week when I was going home for the weekend.

@JolietJake — But on the other hand, we’re missing a gold mine opportunity here. “Oregonians! Learn how to pump gas at JJ and Hillbilly’s Gas Pumping School and Music Emporium!! For just $495 you’ll learn how to pump your own gasoline like a pro!”
@kobesbuddy In Georgia I stopped at a station to fill up once coming back to Illinois...they wouldn't turn the pump on inside, they said I had to 'prepay' how much I wanted...I told them I wanted to fill it and didn't know how much that would be. They insisted I had to prepay before they would turn the pump on, so I said 'screw 'em' and went somewhere else.
