Another Oregon First In History

As you may or may not know, today is February 25th. On this day way back in 1919, Oregon became the first state in the nation to tax gas by the gallon. As they say, the rest is history.

I think Oregon could make history daily when it comes to taxing.

  1. And people still look at me strange when I talk about not being able to pump your own gas there. I don’t get back home very often and I always forget about that. I point to Oregon for beginning many many trendy things, and the finger of blame for gas tax can go there, too. Phooey.
