Speaking at a press conference on Friday, New Jersey Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy was asked about the prospects of self serve gas in the state, as a way to bring down gas prices in the face of a possible increase in the state’s gas tax.

“Oh jeez. I will not commit political suicide in East Orange. I’m not going near who pumps the gas, … but thanks for asking that,” Murphy said to laughter

New Jersey is the only state in the country where pumping your own gas is prohibited. Oregon, the other longtime holdout, now allows self-serve in some rural areas.
