judging from what the steel order was that a few of us made, i would think that steel prices should be quite high but i was a b&n steel today to pick up some odds and ends scrap pieces for my truck and it was crazy cheap.. i believe he said it was 30 cents a pound and i would believe it.. i came away with almost more than i can lift in 3/16 plating in various sizes and it was only 24 bucks.. go figure.. now if more yards were more organized in keeping good scrap set aside that i think i would be doing all my scrap steel purchasing there...

aluminum is sitting at 2 bucks a pound though... too bad all the great sheets of scrap got recycled.. they had some really good stuff there at one point...

I sold a truck shell to Hub City metal the other day. 2816lbs and I got $96. 3.4cents per pound.
