Price of Concrete DFW area?

Hi,
I can't find anything on the net that'll give me the approximate cost of a cubic yard of concrete in the Fort Worth, TX area. I will actually need about 12 yards according to the estimator that I found.

I know I can look in the yellow pages, but does anyone know off hand what I can expect?

If you know of a fair supplier in the area it would help too (if that is allowed on these boards).

Thanks, Brian

concrete varies around the country depending on aggregate costs and labor rates. Just call a local company to find out what the going price is for what type you want. Since you only need 2 loads your main concern will not be price, but getting it where and when you want it. Twelve yards is not much to a company with a break-even point of 50,000 to 100,000 yards per year.

If you shop around, you might save a little. Depending on what your are pouring and if you have a flexible schedule, you might get a deal (couple of $ per yard) on "come-back" concrete, but most refutable companies will not sell it with any guarantees.
