Increasing costs for oil push up price of firewood (Maine)
http://www.bangordailynews.com/news/t/news.aspx?article...

BELFAST, Maine - If you think the price of firewood is high today, just wait until next year.

That was the prediction of three area firewood dealers who see no end in sight for higher prices if the cost of oil continues to rise.

The rapid increase in the cost of fuel has added to the production costs of cutting, splitting and delivering firewood, resulting in high prices, shrinking profits and worried customers, they said.

With seasoned firewood selling for $200 a cord, Belfast wood dealers John Ellis and Brad Bowen and Bangor dealer Sky Burrill said its only a matter of time before they are forced to adjust their prices to cover increasing expenses.

1. $200 a cord?!? Aren't Ann Coulter's books bargain-binned for less than that?
I've always thought home heating was their most useful employment.
