I live at the southern end of the coal fields, about 9 mile from Lehigh Anthracite and 12 mile for the South Tamaqua coal pockets. In early August paid $225 a tone delivered, it's burning nice.

It Depends!

Isn't my NG a byproduct of the coal production process :roll:

I have finally lost my mind. Don't bother to return it. It wasn't working properly anyway!

Geez, I'm 220 miles away for $235 per ton delivered.. Seems like it should be more for me or less for you :?
