    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.
