Villages resist oil development at Yukon Flats
By Tom Kizzia
Anchorage, Alaska (AP)
The new generators in this remote Yukon Flats village shut down every night at 10:30, after the televised evening news, as a way to save fuel. The electric blackout ends in the morning, before caribou meat and other frozen goods begin to thaw.
Times are getting harder in Arctic Village, where diesel fuel arrives by air tanker and retails for $8.50 a gallon. But soaring fuel costs havenít softened opposition here and in other Yukon Flats villages to oil drilling in their own region.
