    I just stocked up on a few ton of salt from cranberry supply and MY GOD, It was expensive. They loaded my 350 and I was weighed at 3.34 tons. My bill for that was like $408. Is that way high for salt? I feel like this is highway robbery and still need to get 10 more ton. Does anybody have any idea of where I can get some better prices near Pittsburgh on salt. I was gonna try and drive down to the coke plant and see if they'll load my 1ton dump, but I'm not sure if they'll load a truck as small as mine. Any ideas?

    Not too familiar with PA prices but in my area that would be about on par for this year.

    Paying $94/ton delivered in Iowa. That's for 25 ton a time, going for $130-150/ton in small quantities

    Not a bad price, 150.00 including tax from middle men around here. 125.00 delivered was the going rate for quantity 4 weeks ago.

    I have a feeling salt prices will drop next year though.

    Our delivered price to Pittsburgh by the truckload at holiday trucking rates is $125 per ton.
    Salt is crazy this year....we're hoping, just like y'all are, that prices get better next year!
    Have you seen our ad on Plowsite yet? We've got salt in stock - bulk, bag and brine. We did NOT
    run out last year. Contact me if I can be of help. Susan, JET STREAM FUELS, 786-566-0195 scromer@jetstreamfuels.com

    That's right on par. Local supply yard is charging 120+ tax. The company I sub for is at 128 if you hadn't locked in your salt yet
