"Coal News and Markets Report" summarizes spot coal prices by coal commodity regions (i.e., Central Appalachia (CAPP), Northern Appalachia (NAPP), Illinois Basin (ILB), Powder River Basin (PRB), and Uinta Basin (UIB)) in the United States. The report includes data on average weekly coal commodity spot prices, total monthly coal production, regional monthly coal production, electric power sector coal stocks, and average cost of metallurgical coal at coke plants and export docks. The historical data for coal commodity spot market prices are proprietary and not available for public release.

Illinois Basin estimates are based on the total monthly production for Illinois, Indiana, and Western Kentucky. Central Appalachia estimates are based on the total monthly production for Eastern Kentucky, Tennessee, Virginia, and Southern West Virginia. Northern Appalachia estimates are based on the total monthly production for Maryland, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Northern West Virginia.
