Alaska Native villages to receive free fuel
Alaska Native villages will receive free heating fuel next month, courtesy of Citgo, Venezuela's oil company.

Citgo plans to deliver more than $8 million worth of fuel to about 15,500 families. Villages say they need the help.

"The whole town, we've been waiting all winter," Margaret Schaeffer, a resident of the Inupiat village of Kiana, told The Anchorage Daily News.

Citgo spent $100 million for heating assistance to tribes, villages and states last year, the paper said.
