    Default Best price for marine diesel in Anchorage?

    The boat is pretty low from my trip of from Seattle, and I need to fuel it up before heading out. I expect that I will take around 200 gallons of diesel. Where is the best (cheapest, but good clean fuel) diesel, either in Anchorage or at the docks in Whittier?

    It seems if someone sold offroad diesel in Anchorage without the tax this would be the best place to fill up.

    Thanks in advance,

    Jim

    Ok I will answer my own quesion here, since I found the current results pretty interesting. I can buy diesel here in Anchorage without the road tax at shoreside Petroleum near Lake Otis and Dowling. The price there is $3.10 per gallon today. I called Shoreside in Whittier, and the price there today is $3.00 per gallon. I guess I am filling up in Whittier for the time being.

    Default Sales Tax

    In Seward they have a sales tax that brings up the fuel price to the same as the price at the local gas stations. This is for recreational boaters, not commercial boats.

    Let us know if Whittier is the same.
