    The price for spot lead closed the week @ 0.8803 / lb on the LME.

    It has been under $ 1.00 / lb since the end of September and under 0.95 / lb for most of that time.

    The Europe debt crisis has drive much of this I would imagine as it seems to get blamed for all the world's financial market issues lately.

    Anyone got a quote on a pallet of shot recently ?

    I heard that lead would be under $30/bad here in Wisconsin by the new year. I imagine that the in stock lead would have to be sold before the new priced lead would be available. Jon

    When lead goes under $30 will gas go below $3.00?

    Maybe this is the start of the deflationary spiral that Uncle Ben is worried about!

    Gas is $2.96 here in central Iowa. Gotta have 10% alcohol in it for that price though.
