Might have to get a ton or so of rice coal to get me through the rest of the winter. How have the prices been lately? I paid $165/ton back in November? I am located in Clinton county PA.

I wish I lived a little more east, I pay 185/ton bulk. It is still half the price of nat gas. If it goes down in the summer I will buy enought for next winter. If I had a big enough truck I would drive east and buy my coal there but I fugure I need to get at least 6 tons to make it worth the drive. I live near Youngstown, OH.

Just checked...$4.19/40 lb bag. I pay a $35 delivery fee. 60 on a pallet...about 2400 lbs...$251.40 plus $35 delivery...this is in Michigan. My dealer wants $5.50 a bag plus delivery. You folks in NEPA are lucky. I will continue to burn it even if its more than Natural gas because of the warmth I get out of it.

$185 ain't bad
the guys got to make a buck
what would you save after gas and the rent on a truck
that can haul 12,000 lbs

I only live 150 miles from a breaker and the best I found near my place is $160 a ton. That is about what it would cost to get a truck and pick it up myself.

I'm not complaining about what he makes, I expect he grosses about $50 a ton. I know a few people who have trucks that can haul 10 ton legaly and are privatly owned vehicles. They would loan them to me if I paid for fuel. I would probably save $500 or $600 on 10 tons. That means I would make between 50 and 60 bucks and hour while getting it. On the other hand if I had to rent a truck I might as well buy it locally. If I had the room I would buy a semi load there would be signifigant savings there. If I bought a semi load and got the coal for $90 a ton It would come out to about $120 a ton delivered (figuring $710 for delivery). But 23 ton takes up room I don't have. So I will just keep buying it locally, but it was a thought.

I see what your saying about the truck, if you can do that then it may be worth your time and effort. Is the 90 a ton for bag or loose.

I’m a New York state resident. Right now I’m paying 200 per ton in my area. I’m 50 miles south east of buffalo ny. Do any of you people know? Were I can find a guy who is willing to bring up a 20-ton load for me in the spring. I’m looking for a load of chestnut coal. If you don’t want to post it here post it in my pm box. Thanks for your help.
