This is the gas station in Prudhoe Bay. It is really self-serve. Even though this is where the oil comes out of the ground, all of this gas has been trucked up from Anchorage or Fairbanks. Virtually all of the vehicles up here are diesel. They have a small refinery up here that takes the crude oil and makes only diesel. During the winter, all vehicles are left on all of the time. So if you are interested in a low-mileage truck that was once on the slope be careful. It may only have 25,000 miles on it, but the engine has been on for 20,000 hours.
