    He has def gone up in price quite a bit. I think he will find some of his customers will be going elsewhere.

    I bought mine at a local dealer near me in May last year and they were $269. Then they dropped down to $239 when I bought a ton in February.

    I might also be purchasing elsewhere. I have my name on his list but I told him that my order will friend on price. He did note that the delivery charge of $25 was per delivery and not per ton. Still not so sure though. We will see.

    I stopped at his business yesterday. The blend will be $224 plus $10 delivery to my neck of the woods.--Rumford about 25 miles
    As stated above, $10 for the whole delivery 1 ton or 4. So my delivery charge will be $2.50/ton.
    Will be getting 4 more tons for next year. Of course the charge goes up the further away you are. Hope this snow melts so he has a place to drop them off. (Small yard)

    This is an option where we live. Good idea when I decide not to deal with bags.

    Pellets would have to be around $500 a ton before I switch back to oil. And that would still be cheaper.
