Stopped to get alcohol free gas for everything that's going to set idle over the winter and snapped a shot of a cash gas pump. Seems they aren't everywhere.

Haven't seen one in mid Missouri yet.
But we do have them at car washes!

I sure like the pricing too. Nice. We don’t have those gas pumps yet. We have the card types.

I recall getting an earful one day from a gas jockey filling up in, IIRC, Oregon (maybe Washington) whilst on holidays. Apparently, it’s against the law to pump your own fuel there? This was nearly 8 years ago though.

That would have been Oregon. It's still illegal to pump your own gas there. I was thru there this spring, but they do allow you to pump your own diesel. There's a fair amount of resistance against the policy about not being able to pump your own gas.

I was just watching youtube and I think it was New Jersey and said it was a $250.00 fine for pumping your own gas. Looked it up also Oregon.

The guy came running out yelling, “You can’t pump your own gas!”

....

“Uh...I’m pretty sure I got it bud. It’s not hard. Thanks.”

Ear attacked....

I'd be happy to sit in the car and let someone else pump my gas. That's the way it used to be all over.

The thing I did not like was you have to hand over your credit or debit card.

I have seen a few of the unmanned fuel stations in SE Missouri, here in Central IL and in Western KY.
