This newfound responsibility seemed to be too much for local Oregonians, and they were quick to voice their disapproval.
Many argued that since they grew up never learning how to pump gas, they shouldn't have to now.
Others were more concerned about smelling like gasoline.
After seeing Oregonians descend into chaos on Facebook, folks living in the other 48 states (New Jersey still doesn't allow residents to pump) that allow you to pump gas for yourself decided to chime in on the conversation.
Some imagined what gas pumps in Oregon look like now that anyone can pump gas all willy-nilly.
Others found the irony in baby boomers who call millennials "snowflakes" freaking out about pumping gas.
One genius even thought to market off their fears.
Don't worry Oregon, you're going to be just fine. I mean, what's the worst that could happen?
