Yeah it's gone up a lot. The quarry where I'd been buying their "oversize" (anything that wouldn't fit thru their screens) for $6/ton went out of business.
The landscaper supply guy next door bought the pit. He sells me the same stone for prices like you're talking about.
Are they selling it by the yard and measuring it by the pound?
5 yards would be a lot of weight on a 1-ton-truck. As much as 16,000# depending on the stone.
I'd look at the weigh slip and measure the bed of the truck delivering it to get a better idea of what I was paying for.
