So back in March I was paranoid about being able to get pellets at a decent price for this heating season. I was listening to all the "shortage" talk and frankly was a little worried. Ended up getting a decent deal on pellets from a local dealer. Not a month later a new pellet mill opened up and started selling premium hardwood (I think) pellets at $250/ton. Had I know he was going to open a month later I would have waited and supported a local guy-oh well. Now flash forward 6-7 months and everywhere I go is selling pellets either by the ton or by the bag and they have PLENTY of them. Our HD has rows of pellets as does TSC and the local dealer I mentioned. The prices are still anywhere from $24--$300/ton but you can get them no prob. Even our gas stations are selling them, and today when I hit Price Chopper (grocery store) they had a pile sitting at the end of the Pet aisle, Inferno's (I think that's what they were) for $5.99/bag. So supply seems to be up but price has not come down a whole lot, at least not in Central VT.
