Since Jim went to all the work to cather that data, I went out and found the comparison points were I could. Two conclusions:
Home Depot doesn't charge Alaskans more than Californians. SLX alcohol $15.98/gal in either state. $6.69/quart in either state.
While Walmart charges us 12% more than you southerners. Coleman white gas gallon: $10.84 in AK, $9.68 in CA. Coleman propane/butane mix canister, 220g: $5.47 in AK, $4.88 in CA.
But I could find Camping Gaz, MSR, and Coleman canisters; SLX and green alcohol, kerosene and kerosene substitutes in our 5,000-person town (Kenai). REI in Anchorage would have a much bigger selection.
Getting further into the bush, I'd consider a stove that uses old-style 16-ounce propane-only canisters because they are the most readily available at camping, hardware and grocery stores. And are the cheapest for their fuel content.
