There will be no issues with pellet supply. People may not like the price, but that is the way it is with capitalism. In the last great pellet shortage of 2005-2006, Katrina hit in late August, oil prices shot up, and pellet mania ensued for the 05-06 heating season. The pellet manufacturing infrastructure and pre-season delivery arrangements were not in place to support the huge increase in demand. This time around, many, many new mills have come on line, and we are going into the summer when mills will be cranking out pellets that will be stored for shipping at a later date. The best way to avoid being caught without pellets, and this works come heck or high water, is simply to buy them in April-August. You will never, ever have a problem if you do that regardless of the supply situation. I had six tons in my yard a month before Katrina hit.
