EUGENE, Ore. – A temporary rule change that has allowed some Oregon gas retailers to provide self-service gas will end soon.
The Oregon State Fire Marshal Jim Walker said the cutoff time will be midnight on May 23.
Starting May 24, attendants will provide service at gas stations in Oregon where self-service is typically not allowed. Self-service is allowed in some coastal counties and in eastern and central Oregon.
The change was initially approved to help ease the strain of worker shortages at stations statewide due to coronavirus.
