:mad3: so freeking mad... I swear these dealers are in collusion with each other! Blaschak did not go up in their prices... so :wtf: ?
the last and only place to get reasonable coal for under $7.00 per bag has failed me :taz:
I need to find a solution... this is really getting out of control! might as well burn freeeking oil if this keeps up :blowup:

I don't think Doug has any bulk coal dealers in his area.

$3.29 here. I couldn't afford using oil to heat my place, specially thermostat at 72 degrees.

You need to come out west here Doug. More than welcome to stop by for a few shots of whiskey for the ride home too. ;)

By "few", I mean 14 or so. :D :shots:

It is tough to compare the cost of something picked up in PA to something retail in Mass.
