How should I buy petrol in America?

I'm in America on holiday with my wife and son. We hired a car and I pulled into a petrol station and a woman approached me at the pump and informed me that "this is a full service station, you can't pump your own gas." She operated the pump and I got back into the car. Why can't you pump your own petrol in America and do you need to tip the person who does it for you?

There are only two states in the USA that don't allow you to pump your own gasoline... New Jersey and Oregon. Other than those two states, it's all self service. It's OK to tip the attendant, but not required. He's getting paid minimum wage for the job. Oh... We don't have petrol. We have Gasoline.
