I know the area well, and I'll PM my number, because if pea is OK you could get that cheaper. I assume you were talking with Don at Longacres, and he will reorder if enough guys make it worthwhile. Look for that pm now.

[quote=Pffftt... Dont get to excited about the prices in Ma. either :doh: but if its any consolation If your paying anything for your wood coal still beats it hands down! Natural Gas is the only fuel currently that can come close to coal. I do feel however that coal for home heating is making a very strong surge around here and with that will come more competitive coal prices in New England as a whole. Many tell tails of this are in the air... Activity level of this forum, new memberships from way outside PA, inventory of pro coal burning antiques in shops, Chubby stoves starting to manufacture again, etc.etc.etc.

Also, as you can see... N/G is regulated BUT they have been and ARE removing all their wonderful incentives for tying into N/G (the first step they take before trying to ever so slowly pull the carpet out from under N/G users without them noticing ;) .... as soon as they do.... ITS a BOOM TOWN for COAL![/quote]

$9+ a bag at some places up here! Is MA that bad??

Welcome back to coal. You'll sleep longer, get less splinters and tend less often. A win, win, win! ;)
