Are they supposedly putting in diesel instead of gasoline? I thought the diesel nozzel couldn't fit in a gasoline tank.

  IIRC Oregon just passed a law allowing people to pump their own gas . "Green" gas , I'm  going to guess which sector of our society thought it really was "green" gas .

You'd think the world is coming to the end out there because they might have to pump their own gas.

Not pumping your own gas does a few things. Keeps the price of gas up slightly due to every place that sells gas has to have atleast one person as their main job.
I remember years ago that my dad liked to go fishing at the coast and he mentioned a service station on the way that while closed would have a pump that took dollar bills (could have been quarters as it was a long time ago) so people could fill up late at night. That was before the credit cards had the magnetic strip readers.

A few years ago gas was cheapest around here in NJ where attendant pumped it. Then they went to pump it yourself but later raised taxes so now gas is more expensive in NJ then in DE.
I prefer to pump it myself and recall being ripped off at the pump when they pumped it.

Lower price was a selling point to change the law, but from what I see in MA, it is BS. The town fire marshal decides and the towns that pump it for you sell at the same price as the self serve. When I was working I'd usually stop at a private label place and convenience store where I could save 20 cents a gallon and have it pumped over the name brand self serve. I did tip the attendant though.

Illegal in most places here, but common in Italy. Stations would close a couple of hours for lunch but pump would be open,

I like the one about halfway down. It's the guy moving the pump handle in and out of the filler neck. That reminds me of my high school days working at a gas station. A traveler was filling his water jug. He was pulling the handle of the hydrant up and down to get water into the jug. It was a typical pressurized system but he apparently saw too many westerns.
