Was curious if anyone is considering going to Alaska this year? Usually by now there are some posts. Was wondering with Covid testing requirements to get through Canada and rising fuel costs if anyone is planning on going.

There's all sorts of people going. Go to this Facebook page.

It's worth reading and it will give you the latest on any Covid restrictions. It's run by Canadians.

I shudder to think what diesel will be in The Yukon this summer! We paid over $6.00 a gallon in 2012!

Canada banned Russian oil imports about a week ago; US just banned those imports today; we are all in for a hard time with gas price increases, but will not complain after seeing the horrors going on in Ukraine, God bless them.

If you can afford to buy fuel it might be a good year to go.

E-bike or dog sled with wheels may be the chosen transport.

We will wait until we see what the cruise options are this summer.

The ferries to AK may be your best travel plans

Currently, both regular and diesel are circa $4.50 per gallon in Los Anchorage depending on station.

In an ordinary time, there's probably a (very unscientific) 20% seasonal increase for the summer season...i.e. maybe expect $5.25 - $5.50? / gallon.

...but that's ordinary and these times are far from ordinary. At my weekend place (where I actually fill up more than anywhere else): Dec. 28, 2020 $2.54, June 15, 2021: $2.99; December 19, 2021: $3.65; last Tuesday $4.29. Nearly 70% increase in about 15 months. I think there'll be more hikes than usual this summer and fewer boat or PA-12 trips.....

The good part is it will probably cut down on the crowds.
