I was working on the north slope of Alaska for an oil company in 2006 and the price of milk was $13/gallon.

Not true for the whole state. There is a highway system through Canada. And there are rumors of dairy cows in Alaska (sarc. off).

What are people paying in Anchorage, Palmer, Fairbanks, Juneau?

I don't know about milk, but I was shocked at how cheap the prices were in this weekly "Red Apple" ad for a local store there in Anchorage. Rib Eye for 5.99lb, cereal 2 boxes for 4 dollars! And every thing else in this weekly add is very inexpensive, except their local seafood! HA! [link to redapplemarkets.com]

Yep. It's the same in the remote north of Canada. I was watching that show "Ice Pilots: NWT" and they got stranded at some remote town for the night... The guy came out of the grocery store "I just spent $110 on groceries. To get through one night."

Here's a tip for people who like stocks: There's actually a company that runs most of the stores in the north:

The North West Company Inc. (TSX:NWF)

They pay a dividend yield of over 6% and they are often the only game in town when it comes to grocery and general stores in the north. I'm looking at buying in for the long term since there is more and more oil, gas and mining going on in the north so therefore potential growth in addition to the steady income from the dividend.

Re: MILK is $18 a gallon in Alaska??
It depends on where you live. There are very few roads up here and may of them are impassable in the winter. Most of the villages are remote and everything is flown in on planes small enough to land an a dirt/snow strip or a float plane

I live on a road in BF nowhere. The nearest "store" and gas station are 30 miles from me. Yes, that's a 60 mile round trip to get gas and groceries.

Milk is $7 a gallon, bread is $5 or more a loaf and the last time I was there, I paid $4.07 for gas.

I'm getting ready to go to Anchorage this week for my once a month shopping trip. That's a 220 mile round trip. It's worth it because the prices are so much lower. It more than makes up for the price of gas.

If you live in one of the remote (read roadless) villages, you can indeed pay $17 for a gallon of milk. Most villagers make annual or bi-annual trips to Anchorage.

Our road system is smaller than Rhode Island's. Keep that in mind when you check out this groovy map of Alaska surimposed over the States.

Oh and how would you know?

I did read more posts about the North Slope. Yes, I will agree Barrow, the North Slope and many Alaskan remote bush communities will have milk probably over $15 a gal.

However, in these communities they are subsidized by the federal goberment, so its true milk maybe high...it is the tax payer again footing the bill for the extreme price.

I would know because I was born here 50 years ago and have spent a great deal of time in the bush. First time I ever saw an indoor toilet I was disgusted that anyone would do "that" inside their home! LOL (But I was a little kid and it didn't take long to realize it was better than the -45 middle of the night dash to the outhouse.)
