    Same here, we are at $240/ton and have plenty in stock. I dont anticipate a rate increase untill i have to buy more mid season. Of course casper and boulder are pretty close, i would expect the market to be about the same.

    $219/ton for New England, standard Grade, $239/ton Quality Premium Softwood, $239/ton Allegheny Premium Hardwood, $259/ton New England Premium Hardwood....I expect the price to remain stable till September, which is when the real procrastinators jump in, then all bets are off.

    $240 delivered 30 miles and stacked in the garage.
    $ 120 a ton for corn in 100# bags.
    I burn 25% pellets 75% corn so the fuel cost works out to $140.40 a ton for winter fuel.

    Idaho. Pellet pricing here has to compete with really low NG and Electricity prices. Electricity just dropped 14% here earlier this summer.

    What is the cost per therm there for Natural Gas? 14% drop for electricity ? Awesome ......We would like to hope any lower prices hold ............ The Average price per thurm for NG here has been .82 cents . Last winter it was up to $1.27 for 2 weeks and averaged around $1.17

    NG runs 1.07 per therm and that doesn't fluctuate much and electricity is 5.425 per KWH (Mostly all hydro generated). Add to that the fact you can purchase wood permits from the National Forests for 10$ a cord. Two of the local National Forests give the first two cords away free. We have a lot of dead lodgepole.

    I'm interested to see what NG does this year. When I calculate the costs of operation I always include the taxes, delivery fees etc. Do you guys take those into consideration with your figures? Our actual per therm price is around .80-.85 but when you add all the taxes its up to 1.00-1.10. Even there it's still 7 cents an hour less to run a 45k btu gas stove than a 45k btu pellet stove. And that's not considering gasoline to go get the pellets. Pellets still beat propane by a long shot, but I really think that for pellet fuel to become truely mainstream it will have to break the NG price barrier again. Let's face it there is work involved with buring pellets and people aren't going to be willing to put the extra effort into it if they're not saving. I think first and foremost the supply must meet the demand, but secondly the price needs to come down somehow.

    Just bought 2 tons from local Walmart - Future Fuel from Missoula, MT - $247/ton. The bag say premium but no specs on ash, fines, or sodium content. Earlier this year in March I bought my first ton of pellets at Lowe's in Glenwood Springs since buying my Harman XXV - Lignetics $168/ton. Currently same Lowe's has Lignetics for a whopping $313/ton!!! Seems on the western slope of Colorado someone is into making windfall profits. It is hard to believe that fuel costs would add up to an 86% increase in cost. At the $247/ton it will be close to natural gas for price per million BTU, at $313/ton, NG is a better deal. The pellet companys are going to price themselves out of the market if this keeps up.

    Lizman,

    Holy mackeral, that's insane! My only question at those prices would be, "Do I get a weekend alone with Shania Twain or Jessica Simpson?"
