    Default Yukon River buying fuel at Tanana, Ruby, Galena cash or credit?

    What is the general accepted form of currency along the muddy banks of the Yukon. Should I bring cash or will they accept checks, or credit cards?Wishing everyone who is going in the field a safe and propsperious season.

    Thanks Much, Tim

    Cash and call ahead for price! In the past Ruby was cheaper then Galena, and Tanana being the Cheapest.

    as far as tanana goes...call ahead andmake sure they got the gas....and there are TWO gas stations there...the one at the store takes card...as well as they have an ATM...the other one only takes cash...and it costs ten dollars just to turn on the pump if noone is there and someone has to come turn it on for u......

    Cash is king. Definately call ahead from the bridge.
    We do not go to the green woods and crystal waters to rough it, we go to smooth it. We get it rough enough at home; in towns and cities; in shops, offices, stores, banks anywhere that we may be placed

    Ruby is 468-4436
    The number I had for Galena no longer works.

    Ruby is open 9-5 or 10-5. M-F. After hours is a call out fee, tho the fuel station worker could be out hunting also.
    You got the number from Raven so call and get your facts from the guy at the station.
    I can't help being a lazy, dumb, weekend warrior.......I have a JOB!
    I have less friends now!!
