    Oil Tumbling - is coal next?

    I do not see coal and oil as competitors. The cost difference on a btu basis is so great that replacing coal with oil makes absolutely no sense. However, metallurgical coal is really a play on steel prices. The fall in steel prices may have an effect. However, ARLP sells very little metallurgical coal. So, I do not see it as an issue for ARLP.
