[quote="NEPAForum Admin That's not anthracite though, there's a huge difference. Depending on the quality of the soft coal you purchased anthracite could be as much as double the BTU's per ton.

I haven't found a source to support that. The source below also shows the various btu's of anthracite which also can be lower than soft coal.

We have found that it's so worth it to pay more for better quality coal when you get a longer & hotter burn. The difference is substantial.

It went up a bit here but not a whole lot. The difference is about $30.00 & about 20 miles further up the road for us to get the better coal. We also get it in bulk. You're a lot further south of us. It wouldnt be worth the price in gas for you to pick it up here. Sorry, can't say what I pay though. Conflict of interest. :wink: :wink:

Found another source for bagged coal here in NH - $5.25/40 lbs or $5/bag if bought by the pallet load.
I picked up their last 4 bags of stove and 4 bags of nut, which they had plenty of.
Not cheap, but better than the $7.50/50 lbs I found earlier.

I don't know if it is true or not but a friend of mine lives up Lykins Pa way. He told me he pays $80.00 per ton if he hauls it him self!!! Man it might be worth the drive for me. Can anyone tell me if this price is right? Can coal be picked up in the summer time? Can it be gotten on weekends or just through the week?

That's a bit more like last years price I think. Not sure were Lykins is located. $80.00? Really? How's it burn? Im in NEPA & it's quite a bit more than that now around here. I did hear it is cheaper in the summer though.

I may have mis spelled the town. I think it is spelled Lykins, it is close to Tower City right above Carsonville. Maybe the price was for last year but that is half what I pay and it is a nice ride up that way :roll:

What's the going price for a ton of rice on Long Island, and how has the price changed in the last year or so?

(no names please, want to keep the Coal Man happy and respect his forum)

Rice coal is $177.00/ton picked up here now. I paid 138.00 in July. It always seems to be cheaper in summer. I fill my coal bin which holds 3 1/2 tons in mid summer. I wish the Coal Man had a branch office here.
