Oregon's Self-Service Gas Prohibition Falls

(Salem, OR) -- After 72 years, Oregon's self-service gas prohibition is set to be repealed. House Bill 2426 would require gas stations to staff half of the pumps, but the other half can be self-service. Fuel companies have wanted this for many years, siting staffing shortages. The Northwest Grocery Association, a retail and food supplier advocate, claims jobs won't be lost because half of the pumps are already closed due to understaffing. The next step is for the governor to approve the bill.
