    Default Fuel in Galena

    I was wondering if anyone knew if Jake was selling fuel this season or not. I heard from some friends today who are heading up for the early hunt, had to get gas in town. It was a text so I didnt get the full story. I wasnt sure if Jake was just out or if he's not selling at all this year.
    Thanks

    I talked to Crowley yestarday and they verified that nobody is selling fuel on the river, however they say that Jake has a truck with a tank/pump and we will help you get fuel at the store and transport it to your boat for a small fee..Any one ever get gas in Huslia? I called there and the nice lady said that they sell it but you need to find a ride to the gas station?

    When you say nobody is selling fuel on the river, are you talking about Galena only? I am wondering about Tanana.

    When did the guy at Ruby start running a hose down to the river again? He sure didnt do it last year.

    Actually have not bought fuel at Ruby for the last 3-4 years. Just knew they removed the hose to the river and that Tanana has always been cheaper. But this season seems like gas prices are at a record high at any of the stops including Tanana.

    I was told by Crowley that all the villages will be getting a shipment of fuel around the 10th and the prices will go down some then. The prices were 6.50-7.25 a few days ago.....I dont care about the price so much as long as I can get it every where I need to. We are leaving from Nenana on the 13th....
