SALEM, Ore. (AP) - Oregon drivers in counties with smaller populations will begin pumping their own gas this week.

KATU-TV reports (https://goo.gl/kQEZI6 ) that the new law affecting counties with a population less than 40,000 people will take effect Friday.

Gov. Kate Brown signed the bill into law in June.

The goal is to make gas accessible overnight in counties where stations can’t afford to support 24-hour staffing.
