Yes you will see the price go up for coal as long as the fuel & oil Prices go up so will the coal to cover there cost for mining it You will see it in a month or so Bag coal is Double the price of Bulk From the breaker The price of bag coal is between 5.00 to 7.00 Per 40lb to 50lb bags 40 lbs loose will be 3.00 or 120.00 a ton at the coal breaker

It depends on where u are. On Long Island the thieves charge 350.00 a ton bagged. In Penn. you can find it for 250.00 a ton. Loose is even cheaper if you can pick it up yourself.

It's not going to stay flat of course but historically coal sees moderate fluctuation in prices. Generally it never goes down except you might see a modest price break compared to the previous winter prices. Price hikes are usually small, 10-15% at most. I' don't think I've ever seen a 20% increase from the summer price.

That is locally now, not sure about your area, as far as $350 a ton.... I'd have to agree with coaledsweat that seems rather steep. Local prices delivered are hovering in the $150 area for bulk delivery.

It's still cheaper than oil. I hope that as coal becomes more popular as an alternative heat prices will come down due to competition. I've thought about taking a trip to PA to get my own. I wouldn't mind buying 10 tons if I could find someone to deliver it. Then I'd have to figure out where to store it.

Well, I pay $300/ton for Blaschak rice in bags near Rockford, IL. Not quite to Kansas City, but not that far away, either!

That price isn't much higher than Blashack's dock in Mahony PA.

I just bought a ton of bagged Blashack on Nov. 9th for $255.00. Pea or nut is the same price. I can't use rice so I didn't inquire about it. I think I now have all I need for the season. 3 ton.

The best part is I only have to travel 7 minutes from my house to pick it up.

Hey Traderfjp:
Look on the bright side: in the Summer you don't have to sit in traffic for hours on the Belt Parkway or the Southern State when you want to go to the beach!

I'm not a big fan of traffic. We do have some local beaches but if we want to go to the ocean we have to deal with traffic on the LIE. If I could get bagged coal for 255.00 I would buy 12 tons to carry me over for the next few years. Hopefully the bags and metal ties would last that long under a tarp. If my supplier jacks his prices too much more I have to start a coop or rent a Uhual.

Blashack bagged Rice is $250/ton, the dealer in (central Ct) said I could have gotten it for $215/ton back in april.

EXCEPT we didn't start researching coal until a few months ago.. that hurt.

I have the opposite concern. If coal heat becomes more popular the price will rise due to "demand".
