Oil irony

Oil may be Alaska's most profitable business - but that doesn't mean the locals get a break.

In one remote Alaskan village, the price at the pump is $8.55. No that's not a misprint.

Statewide, the average price per gallon is $4.65, compared to $4.10 nationally.

Maybe it's time to trade in the family car for a sled dog team. It may make trips to the grocery store a little longer, but it'd be an interesting way to go. Wonder how much it costs to feed a sled dog team?
