Oh, give me a break. The Oregon law isn't against pumping your own
gas, it's requiring service stations to provide *service* - someone to
pump your gas for you. It's really nice to have someone else pump your
gas for you, actually. And no, gas doesn't cost any more in Oregon
than Washington.

Nelson, missing Portland.
