In case you have not been following the Global Energy Commodity we are having a global energy crisis BIG TIME.

Get your wood pellets now while prices are low and and lock in the price of your oil and propane where possible. Its gong to be a crazy winter.

I am guessing prices for wood pellet could double, caused by a potential huge increase demand in Europe. Germany shut down nuclear power plants and no natural gas reserves for winter. Germany has no government to speak of at the moment. China is running out of coal. UK has a self imflicted gasoline shortage and no natural gas inventory going into winter. Post pandemic has increased natural gas and other energy demands. Transition to green energy means banks are reluctant to loan money to legacy fossil fuel energy production. Get ready for a wild ride this winter. Stay warm folks.
