I visited a friend in Portland recently. My first impression of the city was favorable.
One item that bugged me was that in Oregon you cannot pump your own gas. I worry about an attendant scratching the car.
If I do end up at a full service station anywhere else I usually ask the attendant if I can fill up myself and they are usually OK with that. In Oregon I grabbed the nozzle and started pumping my own gas even though the station said full service. The attendant came over and requested that I stop. I stalled him out with chit chat but he looked rather annoyed.
