It takes all three “legs” to support our businesses and
households—the Federal Government, the Petroleum Sector,
and all other resources combined! For 20 years now, Alaska’s
prosperous and growing economy has enabled us to
successfully operate private businesses. In today’s uncertain
times, it is essential that each Alaskan understand and actively
support our economy—the “three-legged stool”—in order
to keep it strong.

Our PFD relies on Big Oil, too!
The Permanent Fund Dividend (PFD) check that most Alaskans receive each year has been a beloved state tradition since 1976.
Did you know that over 20 percent of the Permanent Fund’s top 50 stock holdings is made up of oil and gas companies? When these companies make money, the Fund profits and Alaskans benefit from a good investment. Fostering a healthy, high-performing Permanent Fund is another reason why Alaskans have good reason to celebrate oil and gas companies’ solid financial performance.
