That's fine with me. Should help keep coal prices down if there isn't the spike in demand like there has been for Pellets this year. Supply and Demand. Bags of Pellets are normally around $3 per bag. Right now, if you can find them at a distance, they can be $7 to $10 per bag.
I haven't checked in the past month, but I don't think bagged coal has gone up much in my area.
