    Default Av gas prices in Anchorage

    Where is the best place in Anchorage to buy a couple 55 gallon drums of av-gas?

    Normally I would use my pick-up mounted tank, but the weld split in a corner...

    Best price I've found is Suburban Propane.

    Where are they? I will probably drive the truck up tomorrow and bring a couple 55 gallon drums.
    Av gas is almost $6.00 per gallon here in Homer.

    On Rampart, adjacent to Alaska Mining & Diving's back yard. Turn off of Commercial Drive on the west side of Mining & Diving and they're just past the chainlink fenced yard on the right.

    Willow was $4.89 and was the last place available for skis. Went up .28/gal two days before the Iditarod That's done now, all gravel. Haven't filled up since going back to wheels last sunday. Expecting to feel the burn tonight.

    I paid $6.93 here in Bethel. One of the blessings of living in the Bush I guess.
