UPDATE 5/4: Copper tube mills have announced a 2.5% increase due to escalating input costs.
Copper closed today up over $.10/lb from Friday’s most recent record high. Today’s price of $4.44/lb is the highest seen on copper in over ten years. The global copper supply is extremely tight because of the rising demand for green energy alternatives, which require significant amounts of copper.
