Kinda late in the game. Sales were earlier this spring/summer. Coal prices are way up, and don't look like they are going to fall until we get a new administration in power. Thanks to the green energy crowd!

5% off if you buy a pallet. Not much help but its a little.

I havent gotten an email about a 15% off sale in a very long time, over a year. Might be 2 years. Is that just me or or is it everyone?

I paid 336 a pallet for blaschak 2 months ago . August was the increase went up 100 a pallet . Bulk is 265 ton right now . That’s not far off really. Could be worse. My dad sells heating oils and he sold some kerosene 2 months ago at 7.15 a gallon for a house trailer . I’d image 100 gallons won’t last that long !

I consider Anthracite mining as "green", surface mining extraction and remediation of abandoned mine acid water discharge as a reason. Modern mining practices have little environmental impact and in many case reclamation can be an improvement for the landowner. As for companies charging what they want it's the definition of Capitalism, those wanting government controlled prices are defining Communism.

Agreed, it's all about supply and demand, which is capitalism, but when this country is limited in producing energy, then you will increase a forced demand. That is not free enterprise or capitalism.
So yes in a way the government is defining Communism by controlling prices through their policies.

Curious what policy exactly has caused the current spike in coal prices? I would accept a 25% increase due to increased Diesel cost but these gougers are closer to a 75% increase just because they can, nothing to do with increased demand for Anthracite Coal.

Actually closer to 165% for Lehigh... $170 to $450 year over year.

If it's like this elsewhere in Europe...
https://moneywise.com/investing/stocks/even-worse ... o-buy-coal
"'This is beyond imagination': Poland homeowners are lining up for days, sleeping in their cars to buy fuel — while the demand is keeping coal stocks white-hot..."

"After Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Poland and the European Union placed an embargo on the import of coal from Russia. Although Poland produces coal, the country largely leans on imported coal for much of its household heating" :baby:


According to Wikipee Poland imports 45% for general use, We're making up the difference and suffering for it :evil: I blame the EU for this

Coal is expected to trade at 461.49 USD/MT by the end of this quarter, according to Trading Economics global macro models and analysts expectations. Looking forward, we estimate it to trade at 551.06 in 12 months time.

This is presumably steam coal? With bulk of Anthracite being used as filtration and a carbon raising agent in steel production the demand is relatively consistent, shouldn't be subject to wild price speculation.
