    I herd on the news that Natural Gas price was coming down to a two year low. This should bring the price of Fert down, right? Anyone pre-buying for 07 season to save price increase? Will prices be the same?

    you would think the cost would come down. but I asked my supplier and they said fert prices were too low before and the cost will stay about the same? I think competition between suppliers will bring the cost down if it cost less to make! I know I will be checking around over the winter.

    I asked the same question to Lesco, and I was flatly told "no".

    Natural gas is about half price of what it was last year, but the fert prices haven't dropped significantly. It is just like gasoline, once they get everyone used to paying over 2 dollars we will never see less than that again.
