I Find This Very Weird

Gas Station, Astoria, Oregon At Oregon gas stations, you cannot pump your own gas (it's the law - and pretty interesting - the people voted for it) and the attendants will not check your oil (liability), but apparently ConocoPhillips (76) is qualified to tell you what exercises are safe and effective to get the kinks out of your body when driving distances. Go figure.

On the two-hour drive to Portland, I always enjoy stopping in Longview, Washington, partly to pump my own gas, which also helps get the kinks out.

That is pretty funny. I wonder if they include personal trainers??? So what happens if I do the neck exercise wrong and hurt myself? Maybe they should go back to checking the oil!

What would possess the "lawmakers" and the voters in Oregon to pass such a law?

Conservative Big Brother?

Muy stupido!

I haven't seen any place that pumps gas for you in, quite literally, decades. Such a strange law.

@B Squared - come to the Philippines. Not a self-help station to be found. But not because of any silly law, I'm sure.

Usually what starts on the west coast filters east. Guess I'd better enjoy pumping my own gas NOW! Wonder what prompted the law?

Love to learn something new on the CDP sites. Keep the cultural education coming!
