What's the going rate for asphalt. My brother in law and sister in law just had a driveway poured, cost them 17 grand! I was wondering if they got took or is this a reasonable price. I do not have the footage but guessing I would say they had approximately 2 to 3 tenths of a mile poured. The drive had to be prepped as a lot of it went down a steep grade. There was dirt and sand to start with so it would have been a complete job. I haven't got a clue what this type work requires so I am not bashing anyone here, just seemed like a lot of money!
