    It's a rare moment when a lawmaker realizes that one of their ideas is daft. I think New Jersey might be the only state where pumping your own gas is illegal.

    Can you imagine a "over worked" (haha) kid pumping gas in our bikes?
    Gas spilling out all over a hot engine...... just picture that!

    I have fueled a lot of bikes and gas cans in NJ. By-in-large the attendants realize that they are a little out of their depth when it comes to bikes and gas cans, so they let you handle your business. When it is a kid, they are usually amped to see bikes and ask questions or strike up some sort of conversation. I think most times they are ignored by drivers so they get lonely.

    In Oregon it's illegal to pump your own gas also. Usually Attendants will let me fill my bike while they stand there and watch me. I've had a few that were adamant about filling my bike and of course they only ever half filled it. I usually tried not to need fuel in Oregon. :p

    Actually, NJ is usually quite a bit cheaper than bordering PA, especially Phila. I just checked in Wildwood (my cousin lives there) and gas was running plus or minus $2.25. In Phila, it was about 20ยข a gallon higher.

    But the chance of someone pumping gas into my DH is about the same me allowing valet parking ! ! !

    I spotted one here in town yesterday at $1.87. It's been years since I saw it that low. And this is a weekend when they normally raise the prices. Must be time for yet another disaster so they have another ready made excuse to raise the prices again. That seems to be their MO.

    Yes, it's for price per gallon.

    No, we weren't complaining, even though those prices are for regular and we're supposed ti use Premium.

    Yes, we realize, especially now that we are a net exported or oil & natural gas, the benefits that come being oil independent . . . at least the smart ones among us understand it.

    I am sorry that you are paying through the nose. But, remember, you are are welcome here anytime you want . . . .
