is the correct web site. I paid $360/ton ammonia a few weeks ago and that included the 60 mile trucking for 48 tons.

My point is that the US economy is now built on markup & speculation. That is why the Obama Stimulus is not going to work because it feeds the economy sugar rather than letting the speculators eat their excesses and have true healthy prices. The bailouts will reward the wrong people to have any truly lasting fixes. Shop around and help the competitive do their thing.

Those prices reflect what the raw product is trading for on the commodities market. You have to allow for markup for trasportation to US if from abroad, trasportation to packing plant, bagging of material, markup of the wholesaler selling to you, the end user. Oh, and many of the vendors are sitting on fert. they bought long ago, when prices were not as favorable.

That being said, fert prices from my vendor are down to Winter '07 levels:)

Good point. It pays to shop around, I go to the big chains for boots and spreader parts other than that there is nothing they carry that I can't get a damn site cheaper through my smaller distributor. It amazes me when I see all the landscaper and pc trucks rolling thru their building.Does the conenience of not getting out of your truck justify the high prices that they charge???? No matter what part of the country you live in if you look around hard enough you will find a wholesaler that will give you a much better deal and support.
