Why is there so much more coal on the east coast than there is in the west coast?

    Coal starts out as dead vegetation which forms into peat, and is plentiful in swampy areas. There tend to be more swamps and wetlands in the east than in the west.

    There is very little coal on either the east coast or the west coast – the coal basins are quite far into the interior. In fact, there is much more coal production from Wyoming alone than from the entire Appalachian basin.
