I was just wondering why do you think the price of coal has shot up all of a suddon. I thought it would go up but it has been really climbing. i got a quote from blaschak it was $195.00 ton rice or nut that is pickup one thing i like about there coal is it is washed. any input on coal prices around the area would be great.

I have not seen a sudden increase. It might depend on where you are and who you deal with. Perhaps your dealer has not raised his prices in some time. The nearest place to me is asking $387 a ton for Blaschak.

Talked to my dealer last week about availability and price, he said it was because they were loading train cars of coal to ship overseas. His wait time to get his tri-axles loaded increased to 2-3 hours. Don't know if he was just unlucky or if that is the norm now. This was at Blashak according to him.

Demand may be some of it but if you think about it, Diesel fuel was reasonably cheap in 2009 and rose steadily in 2010 to peak in May/June of 2011. The mines and breakers are following the cost of diesel fuel that is one of the major costs in mining.
