No the real reason is much dumber than that. This is from a news paper article that explains it all :
"It was Irving Reingold who created the crisis that led to the law banning self-serve gasoline. Reingold, a workaholic who took time out only to fly his collection of World War II fighter planes, started the crisis by doing something gas station owners hated: He lowered prices. Fifty-one years ago, gas was selling at 21.9 cents a gallon. The price was rigged by a gentlemen's agreement among gas station owners.
Reingold decided to offer the consumer a choice by opening up a 24-pump gas station on Route 17 in Hackensack. He offered gas at 18.9 cents a gallon. The only requirement was that drivers pump it themselves. They didn't mind. They lined up for blocks.
The other gas station operators didn't like the competition. Someone tried shooting up Reingold's station. But he installed bulletproof glass, so the retailers looked for a softer target - the Statehouse. The Gasoline Retailers Association prevailed upon its pals in the Legislature to push through a bill banning self-serve gas. The pretext was safety, but the Hackensack fire chief had already told all who would listen that Rein- gold's operation was perfectly safe."
Sucks like all hell since I have no problem pumping my own gas.

If it didn't give brain damage and cancer, and wasn't incredibly flammable, I'd leave cups of it around my living space as air freshener. The automotive smells are part of the reason I'm into cars.
Nothing's better then the sweet, sweet smell of gasoline.

Wait... are you the magnificent bastard driving a lime green scion tc that the guys at the pilot on the south end of winnemucca were yelling at over the pa when I was fueling up last night?
Because that's exactly what happened last night except their passenger was yelling "the south will rise again!" While the the driver was yelling "aloha snackbar" as they peeled out.
Lol I live in Rural Not-Really-Virginia it finally hit 1.89.
Been a very spirited driver lately. My MPGs have gone from 26 to 18.
