When I worked on the Alaska Pipeline project in 74-75, I went to the snowmobile races in North Pole on my 2 weeks off. Interesting community.

There's been a few changes since back then, but we're still a fairly small community. I came here in 83, I heard those pipeline days were pretty wild.

There's a book out written by a writer from the Fairbanks News paper that documents the basic things going on during the pipeline project, and it is totally true,100%.

GHD,
I could be totally wrong on this,but I had been told that not one drop of oil in the pipeline went to the US but went elsewhere,probably Japan.

Again,I could be wrong on that.

That's true, after it leaves Valdes on ships, it's shipped over seas to be refined, then we buy it back. We had a refinery here in North Pole, but they shut it down, now it just stores fuel we buy from over seas. Ain't the Gov. wonderful.

What an ironic turn of events.

Economics enters into it.

Like salmon caught in Alaska, flash frozen, then shipped to China where they are cleaned and filleted, packaged, and shipped to the US for retail sale. China doing their part cheaper and maybe because they don't have the labor to do the quantity in Alaska or elsewhere.

Lots of things get shipped around like this, with components made in A, B, and C, shipped to X for assembly, then to Z for packaging or whatever, and then to 1-2-etc. to be sold.
