    I'm sure the Illinois members have heard about this. Illinois has a bill pending that will make it illegal to pump your own gasoline. New Jersey and Oregon have similar bills. If it passes, it will take effect January 1st.

    I wonder how that works at truck refueling stations and will it cover diesel? If it passes, I'll be sure to fuel up in Indiana since I live 25 miles from the state line.

    guess DRIVING your car to the gas station no longer instantly qualifies you as smart enough to pump your own fuel!!

    Maybe they can develop a test to limit baby making!!!! that would save the world

    I don’t want some kid touching my car and pumping my gas. People need to get real jobs.

    It will be interesting to see the claims customers make when some 17 year old kid scratches my car by dragging the nozzle on my paint job...

    sounds like the cost of gasoline will go up to follow suit.

    Well, NJ has some of the lowest gas prices I have seen. Probably less gas tax but I know when we go through NY we always wait to NJ to gas up.
