wood pellet cost and availability
Cost and availability varies seasonally and from region to region. Your local Home Depot, Wal-mart, Lowes, Ace, Agway, etc. may carry wood pellets but not always be in stock. Although they receive periodic deliveries of maybe 18 to 24 tons throughout the heating season, this may sell sell out within an hour or two since their prices tend to be lower. Call to find out when the next delivery is expected so as not to miss out. As an alternative try your local feed & grain suppliers but be prepared to pay more.
Most chain stores sell by the ton (fifty 40lb bags) not by the bag, so be sure to have adequate transport on hand. Look for a price of US$200 to $230 per ton if you buy in bulk. Prices per bag vary greatly in the $5 to $10 range, depending on location and grade.
