Coal Price Increase

PostBy: grobinson2 On: Sun Apr 17, 2011 10:48 am

I just wanted to see if anyone else had heard about a large price increase for Jetto, S & T (Stockton), Blaskak, and UAE at the end of April? Yesterday I went to our local coal yard just to pick up enough to get me to the end of this heating season and this was all anyone was talking about. I normally burn UAE but the closest thing they had was Supiear so I went with one 55 gallon drum of Supiear nut and one drum of Stockton pea again both in 55 gallon drums filled to the top. What I found interesting was that my drum of pea was 480 pounds and the drum of nut was 396 pounds. Is this a difference between the denser Stockton coal or because the pea packs tighter? Still I thought it was a big difference in weight for such a small amount of coal.

Thanks,
Glenn

Would not surprize me abit, everything is going up! I went to pick up pizza at the local pizza parlor and they had a big sign up saying the first of the month pizza was going up. They did not say how much of a price increase yet, probably depends on how much fuel costs go up by the end of the month

I e-mailed Kimmels and the price is up 5.00 a ton and will increase again. Fuel prices are the reason.

Yes, Pea packs much tighter ;) Plus it strikes me that Pea holds moisture more-so then Nut

It would follow that coal prices would have to go up as costs escalate. $4+/- off road, 4.25 on road.....plus all other costs going up. Fair is fair, especially since coal folks are as 'frugal' as any folks on earth. Well, perhaps the 'Dung burners' are the most cost effective amongst us all. Smitty...if only there were a way to capture all the 'dung' on Capital Hill', you could do as Alaska does with the 'Oil Subsidy'. The Methane exhaled every day there, would heat and fuel all of New England.

Yea, they said it was fuel cost and the fact that China is sucking up all of our coal. UAE will not sign new contracts for any coal after July as they do not feel they can keep up with current production. Another local blashak dealer said they will not honor his usual 300 ton like in past years.

Theo, a friend of mine owns a pizza shell/crust manufacturing business and he told me flour prices
are rising on a daily basis. He has bulk tanker deliveries blown into his silo, and if bulk prices are
killing him you can imagine the hurt of corner pizza shops buying in 50# and 100# bags.
Also, the fuel surcharges on his deliveries are rising.

Funny thing though,my coal delivery last month was DOWN by $ 20.00 per 2 ton compared to
my January delivery.. ;)

I just now got off the phone with UAE. The office claims that they are unaware of a price increase at this time.Then again the yard office may not set the policy for the outfit.I hope they can hold on till I can get the little trailer emptied of the big load of compost. Mike

I pulled the trigger on a load of coal for 2011-2012 heating season. I hope the world does not end as the Mayans predict or I may just wasted some money. :lol: $225 a ton picked up from the coal man. Got 8.25 ton. Was selling for $230 a ton but gave me a break for the big load. Little on the wet side due to mother nature's recent storms though. :roll: But, I'm happy to have my bin full ahead of time. My local gets Jetto (Jeddo- how is that spelled?)coal. Said the price was going up $10 a ton in May. Coal bin is FULL ++++. Had to fill every pail/tub I could empty. Just hope I can heat the DHW this summer also. That would be excellent!!!

Oh yes they do the owner office is inside the trailer As of yesterday no price increase yet but can't guarantee it won't
be going do to fuel cost and production slowing down do to that they will not be able to use the continues miner
much longer to mine the coal They will be going to conventional / by hand mining soon .

Nothing close about Superior coal & UAE coal big difference between the to.
UAE is a far better product then what Superior is Now .
