Coal prices

PostBy: lancenator09 On: Wed Jan 09, 2013 12:28 am

I live in Muncy, Pa and I am buying my coal from a yard about 2 miles from my house and paying $200 a ton. I was wondering if there is anyone out there that lives close to me and knows of a cheaper place to buy it. I would drive to Shamokin, where my coal come from, but with gas prices the way they are it's not really worth the trip.

200 a ton? I would like to know where you are buying from. I'm in Williamsport.

Here lies the basic problem, Shipping and handling of coal is an expensive proposition. $200/ton retail is not a bad price, even if the coal is moved only a few miles from a breaker.

I live in Lewisburg and drive to Calvin Lenigs to get coal.They are a few miles west of Trevorton on 225.I haven't gotten any since September but it was 160 a ton then.If it costs you 40 bucks in fuel then you may as well just get it close to home,especially if you're happy with the quality ;) .

it would be worth it to me if i could get 4 or 5 skids on a trailer and haul it back up to buffalo, thats almost a tank of gas each way!

I drive out to NEPA from Rhode Island to get my coal. Saves me about $500 per year to do do. Right now I'm on the fence if its worth it, especially as I miss bagged coal. Not a big fan of shoveling and moving the coal multiple times before I get it in the boiler. My wife an I sure do enjoy the long weekend out there though.

I'm in Dushore and I'm stuck with 220 picked up or 50$ delivery flat fee. 200 isn't bad for the area.

I'm buying my coal from Kepner Farm Supply in Clarkstown. I think he is hauling it himself from Shamokin. It's definitely not worth it for me to drive to Shamokin with the price of gas.
