There is NARY a bag of coal to be found on the North Shore of Taxachusetts right now. The one place that does have some wants, now get this... They want $458.40 for a TON PLUS $141 for delivery!!!!!! Please note they are 10 miles from my home. And yes that is per TON. Not 1.2 tons. They are charging HIGH RETAIL prices on tons. Over $9.00 a bag. (50 bags per ton)
Other sellers are OUT and have been out for over a month. So there is a coal shortage issue depending on ones location. Now what is causing this shortage is the question.
If anyone wants these thieves name PM me. I have their emails confirming pricing and delivery charges as well.
Good rule of thumb that has been mentioned many times on this fine forum. ORDER YOUR COAL IN THE SUMMER.
