    Local Home Depot (Butler, Pa) has their pellets for $177.00 a ton.
    With the veterans discount, It would make the pellets at $150.00.
    No tax in Pa.
    Not a bad price, get the pellets on 12 month financing.
    Local delivery is $62.00, but being that I live in the country, I am charged
    $72.00. Still not bad for delivery of 7 ton...will be ready for next year.
    Hope it is not too cold!!

    My receipt says "Non-Discountable Item"

    Do you ask if you could apply anymore discount to the price?

    My big bad ass buzzard is looking for your tiny bird. Pellets will stay the same or even go down until the inventory is depleted or the retailer pre-orders are in. There are so many producers right now that the wholesale competition will keep things low. In my area we have gone from one good and one bad producers, three years ago to one bad and seven good. Shipping should not be a factor so much out here.

    I have had no problem with the 10% Veterans discount.
    They have tried to charge me the Pa tax (6%), but had to
    convince them that there is no tax in Pa of home fuel.

    With big box stores starting to get ready for spring I know they will move bulk products. Jump on the deals. With the price of fuel going up it will cause pellet pricing to go up. This might be the time to grab what you can.

    Lee, Your not the first insider I heard saying there on the rise. I am loading it up to the hilt! I don't think I'm the only one either. At least in the east anyway. Spent to many years watching fuel prices rise and pellets followed right with them!

    There are 4 that I know of 500,000 TPY projects coming on line on the east coast this year that will export most if not all.
    Oil is on the rise.
    Chips are on the rise. Paper producers have had the best year in MANY! Mostly export.
    EPA has givin' the green light to biomass.
    Logging is at an all time low and logging/mill infrastructure has been totalLEE decimated over the past 3 years.
    All the stars for high pellet prices are close to being in line.
    Will it be a repeat of 08? I did call it matter of fact!
    How many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie pop???????????? The world may never know!

    When crude oil prices go up everything follows it. This would include pellets. They will raise the prices just because they can. I hope this is wrong and pellet pricing remains about the same for next season. Stock pile them if you have the funds, and the space to keep them. I know I'll probably keep about 8 to 10 ton on hand to last a while.

    just think, since the logging industry is in the dump and nobody is producing lumber, because new homes aren't being built, they will be cutting down tress just to produce pellets, they should be hitting rock bottom soon at 75.00 / ton ???

    Sure it could,,,,, But I'm not stupid, already purchased next years supply, we haven't seen 187.00 / ton in a long time. Would buy 10 tons if I had the room.

    Mills aren't gonna make pellets free and give them away.
    Figuring in moisture content $75/ton is around what mills are paying for raw product. Some I'm sure are paying more. I can just about guarantee the prices you are seeing now are prolly the lowest you will see them maybe ever again. If you think pellets are gonna be high this next year we won't even talk about corn .

    Understood, but if raw materials for making pellets are in short supply because new homes aren't being built and mills aren't making lumber, then the logs could just be used to make pellets. nobody really knows, but like I said, I already have next years bought and stacked, I am buying 3 tons for what 2 cost the last 5 years.

    Your only kidding your selfs if you think pellets will go any lower and if they do it will be whats on hand at the big box stores just before the weather starts to turn better. You will have to be in the right place at the right time to get them any cheaper and they will probably be the junk, Inferno's, that no one wants. If you have the room I say get them stock piled using whatever long term financing you can get or rob some money out of the pillow your sleeping on.
    I have just shy of 11 tons stashed and will get more a little later on.
