    I hope I didn't jump the gun but I could not resist.

    I just purchased five ton of Sumerset Pellets at TSC for $163/ton.

    With tax and fuel for picking them up I have a total of $177.41 in each ton.

    Now I can enjoy the summer knowing next years heating supply is tucked away.

    Would you have done the same or waited to see if prices go down?

    I haven't seen prices that low here in the northeast. And if prices do go down, I doubt they will go down by much. I would have bought at that price.

    I think we made a good deal on those pellets with fuel (delivery) prices continuing to increase.

    Awesome purchase! I would have done the same. Ditto on the NE...You just can't find prices like that around here.

    Yeah, get on the purchase of tonnage. If if prices go down, most likely they wont go down that much.

    Ya done good JAW. I wish I hadn't read this thread. I paid $244/ton (including 8% tax) for two tons of Somerset Pellets from TSC. But considering that TSC has absolutely NO competition down here and stopped stocking pellets in their stores in late December, I'm very happy to have any pellets at all. I called the Somerset plant and they called TSC who put two tons on the next truck to my local TSC store. I would have paid full price but thy gave me 10% discount and now I don't have to worry about pellets for another year.

    You have made a good deal.

    I am selling pellets at $180 per ton with six tons or more, plus tax.

    I am just north of Youngstown, Ohio.

    You did good! Best I could do was $238.75 per ton delivered and I bought those. Northeast prices will never get to Midwest prices for some reason.

    There were four of us that went together to purchase 16 ton.

    My share was the five ton.

    Once I started looking I was surprised at the number of folks heating with pellets in my local (within 20 miles) area.

    Next year I hope to have a large enough coop to purchase a full truck load (22 tons).

    Thanks all for the reply, it is a good feeling knowing others would have done the same.
