Paid USD240/ton + 50 delivery charge in NE Ohio. It's allegedly Reading nut. It is nut, but lots of fines. I have no idea what breaker it came from, and I have to take the broker's word on it being Reading.

I had to buy the wood I was burning...lot clearings and sawyer rejects from local timber dealer. USD600 for a triaxle load of poles that I had to process and split. If I gotta buy it, cut it, split it, haul it in, and load the stove every 4 hours I might just as well get coal. Less work less often, more Btu per unit measure, less ash.

I don't think you will see a decrease. Small increase toward fall or stay flat.

I mentioned this on another thread. I had the same thought as to what might happen with coal prices this summer with oil dropping over 50% since last summer. Blaschaks locked into their oil contract last summer. Today, we're paying for that oil cost factored into the coal. I suspect there's going to be at least a 20% drop in coal prices this summer. Also, somebody else mentioned that coal has to be significantly cheaper than natural gas and oil or else nobody would bother with the hassle of coal. With that said, I wonder if there's a target ratio coal supplies like to sell when compared to oil and ng? Any smart business person has to price their product against other products.

Oil price drop should help drop the price of anthracite. Diesel use is a large part of production cost. Delivery should be down
as well. Worst case scenario is that it stays the same. They would be hard pressed to increase price.

Burned coal for 20 years, made switch last year from local dealer selling Reading to a dealer in South Tamaqua after seeing their add in the Allentown paper. American Premium Coal Sales 150.00 per ton Pick up or 175.00 delivered minimum 5 tons 2008 price( i'm 30 miles away). Cleanest and best burning I have ever used. They quoted me 195.00 per ton this year delivered and 150.00 pick up. A bit surprised price is more than last year since oil prices tanked. Hopefully it's same quality.

There should be other info on this:

bulk or bagged
delivery or pickup
delivery cost
total amount of coal purchased

this all makes a difference
