    I had to pay $150 per ton delivered this year. I expect prices to come down next year, but who knows? Last year I was only paying $60. I could tell you the local sources here, but I'm 3.5 hours away.

    Salt is going to come in by barge, train, or truck. I'm not sure where you should look in your area. Indianapolis? Gary? Toledo? Louisville? I think salt was a lot cheaper in OH this year than in IL.
