Depends on where you live.....

...and what grade lumber you're looking at.

Select #1 pine is more expensive than #4.

Doug Fir is cheaper on the West Coast than here in New England.....

....and there's Home Depot Doug Fir and CVG (Clear Vertical Grain) Doug Fir...

What he said......but generally, pricing would be cedar highest, next is fir, last is pine. There are always grades of each that affect the pricing.

Go to the local lumberyard and ask them.
Is this just a question of curiousity or do you have a project planned?
Sometimes the project will determine the wood species. Sometimes it's the budget.
