New Jersey Gas

People in New Jersey are allegedly irate that someone thought of giving them the option of pumping their own gas. When I drove through the state a few years ago, I was annoyed at having to pay someone (via the tip) to do something which I could just as easily do myself. Reading the article was, for this Midwesterner, a strange experience, as gas pumping was discussed as this complicated skill requiring special training rather than something that I don't think anyone ever actually taught me, but I just always knew how to do just because.
