    Years ago it was low and it went to $35 a ton i hauled a lot of it for that price. If it gets back to $100 i will get rid of the cars.I dont have room to store much more.

    I hauled another load and reloaded this week end. This has most of the tin and wire hauled off. If it gos up or stays at this price till the end of summer i will haul my cars. I need a good price to feed my 3.5 mpg truck.

    I am going to start hauling my cars off. I am afraid that with every thing that is going on its will stay the same till winter then drop and i will be stuck with them for a while.

    It went way down in the spring then came back to $80.00 a ton for cars. I had plans to buy a truck and trade trailers and haul it all off . I got the truck but dont think i will buy a trailer now.

    I got sick of all the stuff laying around and hauled off a few loads about a month ago, think it was about 45 a ton, not much more than the fuel it took to haul it away but at least its gone and now have more room to pile more up again.
