Portland Stories and Tips

No taxes and don't pump your gas!

Another great thing about Portland and the entire state of Oregon is no sales tax. When you walk into a store and it says $1.99, it's $1.99.

But be careful. If you're driving, don't hop out of your car and expect to pump the gas yourself. It's illegal in Oregon. That's right. Pump attendants will do it for you. No need to tip. It's part of their job. What a treat. We figured it had to do with gas emmissions. I'm all for it if it keeps Oregon as beautiful as it is.
