    Seems a little high. I was hoping for better pricing this year. Looks like another new pile on the dock today.

    Its always difficult to judge by what's on Jones island. Quite a bit of it leaves the area.

    Price from vendor #2 dropped a whopping 4%, still want a 50% "booking fee."

    But it is domestic salt, not African or South American. And not tied into the pile that can be shut off

    The Italian solar salt we were using last year was basically water disguised as salt..
