I was suitably embarrassed during a drive to Oregon several years ago.  I just
hopped out and started to fill my gas tank...the attendant came running
over in
a semi-panic waving his arms at me.  Too weird!  

What I want to know is *WHY*???  Is this some sort of legislative thing? 
What's the purpose behind this?  I like pumping my own gas cuz, like Heidi
said, I'm usually in a hurry and don't like having to wait on someone else. 
BTW, what is the price of gas down there right now?  I'm trying to get some
kind of comparison since I'm going to be driving down there for several rides
this year.
