McGrath fuel $9+ a gallon

For you guys who plan to mine in the McGrath area take note, car gas was $9.20 a gallon today. I have paid $8 to 9 for avgas the past couple years out there but I've never seen car gas over $6.

It will likely come down some later in the summer when they can get a barge up the river but if you are going out early be prepaired for some additional expense to run your dredge.

Maybe we should be test drilling for oil instead of dredging. :smile:
Holy cow, I will never complain again about paying $4.60 a gallon down here.
Alaska supplies are expensive, plan and budget for such.- John

Re: McGrath fuel $9+ a gallon

Chuck,
Why is unleaded fuel so inexpensive in Arizona? You guys don't have any oil wells; you make it out of illegals? :confused:

I could have flown 130 gallons of gas to McGrath for under $6 a gallon in my plane (if I did the math right). Considering about $300 in avgas to get me there and back. With car gas at $3.40 in Anchorage and the plane has a 1000 pound payload with full fuel. I weigh just over 200 so 130 gallons of gas at 6 lbs a gallon (does car gas weigh the same as avgas?) would bring it up to gross. Though I didn't include the weight of the fuel drums and I forgot to weigh the beer...

I probably doesn't mater anyway. There is suppose to be an earnest money check in the mail Monday and then plane will be going in for a pre-buy inspection. I think it's sold... again. The last buyer didn't come through with the money so who knows I could end up keeping it for the summer. If so I'll definately drop in.
