    Bill,

    How do you handle batteries? Do you sell them with the acid or do you have to drain them?

    Grain is trading very high as well as most metals, brace for higher food prices.

    Everyone better start locking their hood. I can see a rash of battery thefts, just like the copper thieves and air conditioners, coming down the road.

    Lead price is for pure lead not the mixed stuff in wheel weights or batteries that contain any contaminats.
