That has to be a joke. If it's true the guy should have been fined on the spot and never allowed to drive the car away as the page states. Looks like the damn frame on the car is bending, look at how the drivers door lines up. That's besides the fact that load isn't even close to being properly secured.

Lots of people claim that's a photoshop job, but my wife's uncle lives just down the street from where the picture was taken and he saw it with his own eyes when he went downtown for coffee and the paper one morning. Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction, as they say.

On topic - not sure what they're getting per bag for Nut Anthracite around here. Last year it was $300 for a pallet of 60, 40# bags or $5.25/bag for less than a pallet load. With any luck, I've got enough to go the whole winter already and won't have to buy any to finish out the season.

$130.00 per ton. The coal I burn is mined several miles down the road from my home! Land is owned buy a coal company and leased to the mining company, they mine and process for the coal company. The mining company gets to sell of a certain percentage under their own name for prophet.

When I first joined the forum, and called around to see where I could get coal, I found one dealer in Paterson that charged $270 for non bagged coal delivered to NW Morris County. Wondering if there price has gone higher now that we are in the beginning of heating season.

Based on reading all the replies, I have to assume then that the best time to order your coal is in late Spring or early Summer. As I am hoping to be eventually included in the outer delivery perimeter of our host, wondered which month makes the most sense to purchase. Apparently coal prices are seasonable, and supply and demand control the prices the nearer your get to heating season.

How high could that be? Can I purchase coal for pickup from our our host?Will the price differ much from now on and through the winter? Since the ability to transport is limited by the size of the vehicle, wondering if I should consider renting a dumptruck next year and picking up a two year supply. The idea of Co-op seems like a good one. Any chance of that?

Prices don't fluctuate that much in our area, you may see a $5 - $15 difference per ton at most. Granted it's more than few dollars a couple but not some exhobitant amount.
