I'd be thinking about getting it now..
The last time I said something like this, some thought it was the
same old "scare tactics".
Shortly after, like a week later, it went up 10 bucks.
Several weeks later it went up another 10.
We plan on getting at least 2 TT loads right now.
For two reasons.
One, we know the price.
Two, we won't use that until winter.
In other words, usual ordering throughout the summer/fall.
The 40 or so ton now, will be insurance in case it becomes hard to get
in the winter, prices go up, or trucking or whatever issues..
Trucking cost to us has been 1,050.
Our guy does his best to be fair, we use him at his convenience.
A call this week to a couple of different outfits..... 1,500-1,600.
And honestly, it is REALLY doubtful the cost would ever go
down enough to make you say "crap... wish I had waited".
Just look at your gas prices.
Do they ever go down as fast as they go up?
Do what you want.
But if your bank is like ours, paying .01-.02% on your money,
you might be better off investing in the coal
that you are going to buy anyway!
You'll have it, you won't have to worry about it,
and you know what the cost is.
Take care, Dan
