I did find someone to bring his 20-22 ton coal truck from pa to NY for about"200" a ton so far his truck has been obligated to 14 tons . We need to have it full for him to come to NY and make iy worth his while! He would be making 70 extra on the coal for each tomn minus diesel. Before diesel that would be about 1500.00 for his day minus fuel! I think thats pretty darn good for both partys!:) I am paying over 300 a ton right now! So for me I would save 100 and some on each ton! Let me know your thoughts:))

Coalstoves asked what people consider a fair price. Obviously the farther you get from coal country the economic advantages of using coal go down. When I started burning coal the price here in northeastern newyork was less than 150 a ton. hardwood was about 100 a cord green . Now five years later hardwood is about 125 green and I'm paying 240 a ton bulk which i shovel myself and it's junk Reading reading which doesnt burn half as good as bagged Blascak $ 7 a 40lb bag or Kimmels at $8 a 50lb bag. I don't know how yet but I'm going get alot of coal at least 10 tons at a better price than I'm paying now.
