Welcome to the club. Last year 250 feet of 12-2 was $35. In May, it spiked to $121, and is back down to $102 as of yesterday. It is affecting all our building quotes, so there ain't much you can do about it right now. I guess the wire manufacturers determined if the gas companies can poke us, so can they, and they did.

China is buying up all the scrap metal they can, and this is driving up metal prices in a big way.

Copper is a world commodity, just like oil. So, when world market conditions raise the price, it goes up everywhere, and you will not find anyone with a stash which they are willing to sell for cheap.
