All my firewood is white oak & the propane pre-buy this winter was $1.37.
I live in a VERY poor VERY rural area, and most things are way cheaper than areas where folks make decent wages.
Eggs 25 cents a dozen, Ground chuck $2.00 a pound, large candy bars 35 cents, etc..
Glad we retired before moving here though....No way would i keep installing carpet for $2.00 a yard.
