There are gas stations at Haines Junction, Destruction Bay, and Beaver Creek. Kluane Wilderness Village was closed last August, no more gas there.

You can keep an eye on conditions before you travel at:

Alaska Road Traveler Information Service (http://511.alaska.gov/default.asp?display=all&area=STATEWIDE_AK&textOnly =False - broken link) This has conditions/construction reports for the Alaska Highway in the Yukon also.

Should I be worried about running out of gas or are there enough places to stop along the way? I'll be driving it two weeks from now. Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated!
The first gas available once you cross the border is at Haines Junction, about 150 miles from Haines. We're making the trip to Anchorage from Haines and I figure we can make it to either Beaver Creek or the first station across the border (around 330-350 miles), before filling up. There are stations between Haines Jct. and Beaver Creek if you can't make it that far. From Beaver Creek to Tok is about 110 miles with a couple of stations along the way.

Thanks everyone for your replies! I just made it to Anchorage, with no problems along the way (other than some slight nausea from all the frost-heave roller coaster roads...jk!). Customs was a breeze on both ends...I even told the lady "That's it?" because I was expecting more, and she thought it was funny! Gorgeous sail/drive!

We drove through in December, there was only a handful of gas stations. We carried some extra gallons of gasoline with us just in case. But we did fine. :-) I heard it's gorgeous when there isn't snow on the ground!
