Petroleum, fishing, forestry, and tourism are all industries that involve the extraction, production, or promotion of specific products or services. Copper, on the other hand, is a mineral that is extracted from the earth and then processed into various forms for use in different industries. It is not considered a key product in the same way as the other options listed.

Although Anchorage has a larger population, Juneau is considered the largest city by land area. Additionally, Juneau is located in the southeastern part of Alaska and is known for its stunning natural beauty and outdoor recreational opportunities.
