Why is everyone moving to Oregon
USA: In the state of Oregon refueling is considered life-threatening
The state of Oregon
Snow-capped mountains, dense forests, spectacular river canyons, rugged stretches of coastline on the Pacific, arid plains and fertile fields - Oregon is a state of geographical contrasts. All on an area of 255,026 square kilometers; this makes Oregon the ninth largest state in the United States.
Its state flag is the only one in the United States that has different motifs on the front and back: the seal of the state (with covered wagon, ship, mountain and sun) is depicted on the front and a golden beaver on the back. Oregon owes its nickname "Beaver State" to this animal.
Oregon is also the only state with an official state nut, the hazelnut. 99 percent of the US's entire hazelnut harvest comes from what is known as the Pacific North West.
When asked about the capital of Oregon, many are wrong. Portland is the largest city in the state with around 630,000 inhabitants, but the capital is Salem (with only around 160,000 people), about an hour's drive southwest of Portland.
The gas stations
You have only been allowed to refuel yourself in Oregon since January 1, 2018. Until then, only trained tank attendants were allowed to use the fuel nozzle - for safety reasons. But they don't have to worry about their jobs now, because they are only allowed to refuel themselves at free-standing gas stations in counties with fewer than 40,000 inhabitants.
The ban continues to apply in larger cities. After the law was changed, there were many angry reader comments in the local press: “I refuse to refuel myself. I had to do it myself once in California and almost died. "Or:" I'll literally park at the gas pump and wait for someone to fill up my car. "
