Somehow every time a new year starts new laws go into effect and a new law that took effect this week in Oregon is making residents that live in population of less than 40,000 pump their own gas!
However, Oregon has been notorious for being one of only two states (with New Jersey) that don't let people pump their own gas. An Oregon news station's Facebook post has been going viral for reporting on it!
You definitely want to check the comment section on that post because the comments are hilarious! Also, check out some of the Twitter reactions to the law change below.

Here's one tip Oregonians for two people who lived in New Jersey, don't ever try to recreate that scene from Zoolander. Even if you really want to!
