      Once having the third-lowest power costs in the U.S., West Virginia now ranks 21st. The new economics challenge a coal-rooted state : Laurent Belsie. The performance of the coal industry is assessed by comparing the actual production and price levels with their corresponding normative values. The level of efficiency appears to be directly related to the total demand for coal; labor union activity and the structure of the industry are considered as possible causes of the inefficiency, which.
