    http://www.321gold.com/editorials/holmes/holmes021909.html Here is a link from a commodities trader that said that lead prices have risen 12% in 2009. With China gearing up again and steel and iron prices starting to stablize we may be close to the bottom. This is just one mans opinion but read his article to get a clear picture on all the commodities. I would love to see at least $20.00.

    My guess is lead will continue to drop in price because auto sales are slow to non exsistant which in turn makes battery(80% of lead production is used in batteries) sales slow. If battery sales are slow then all the lead isn't needed to make them, supply goes up and prices drop. Until the economy starts to improve I dont think lead prices will go up, at least not this year. Prices are going lower and when shot gets in the mid teens for a bag then buy a 10 year supply and forget about it. Doug

    Most lead for US car batteries comes from lead recycled from old car batteries.
