You need a gas station at the damndest times. And then, when you're looking for a filling station, can you find it?
I was reminded of this the other day. I was downtown and needed gas. The scooter was running on fumes. Hmmm. So I headed up Lovejoy, and once I was past Rose City, I remembered that they offer gas, so I doubled back. And at that point, I thought if I had a hard time keeping track of gas stations, others, particularly visitors, might also.
Gasoline is much more plentiful once you get outside of the inner westside. On the inner eastside, you can find multiple gasoline stops on SE and NE MLK/Grand.
Oh, and just a note: in Oregon, you cannot pump your own gas. Here's wikipedia's take on that:
All stations in New Jersey and Oregon, however, are mini service; attendants are required to pump gas because customers are explicitly barred by statutes in both states from pumping their own gas. Both states prohibited self service in the 1940s due to fears that foolish customers would handle gasoline improperly. Oregon's Department of Environmental Quality has also ordered a ban on self-service gasoline due to inexperienced pumpers being a significant source of groundwater and air pollution. Oregon's state fire marshal has also ordered a ban on self-service gasoline. Today, these states enforce the law because of the rapid increase of drive-offs, where people fill up their car and drive away without paying for gas. In 1982, Oregon voters rejected a ballot measure sponsored by the service station owners, which would have legalized self-service gas.
