Former Alaskan: Sarah Palin Can't Help But Love High Oil Prices

It's in the interest of any Alaskan governor to maintain high oil prices Having moved to Tennessee in 1990 after living nine years in Alaska, I appreciate how distant Alaska's concerns are from the rest of the nation. There is no income tax in Alaska because most government services (including state salaries) are funded from oil tax revenues. When crude prices are high, Americans pay more for gas at the pump, but in Alaska they call that "a boom." To Alaskans, particularly for the governor of Alaska, it would be absolutely impossible to view high oil prices as anything but good. This translates that no Alaskan in good conscience would ever lift a finger to lower the price of gas at the pump, but it might be worth asking Sarah Palin how she plans on doing just that. I mean, asking her in front of her current constituency. Scott Webb Nashville
