Although it is an interesting read, it's not necessarily news. Prices on all imported materials have been going up for a few years now. Which to some is scary, but to others (such as myself) it's good.
I work for a metal manufacturing company, and we have been using domestic steel for about 8 years, and our prices have always reflected that. Now that domestic is finally competitive with imported it helps a company like ours compete with those that used cheaper, lesser quality, imported steel. What is news is all the steel mills re-opening that have been shut down for 20+ years.
These price increases have heavy hits for companies that relied on cheap imported materials. So.... IMO, good riddens.
Maybe we will start seeing American made products in our campers more regularly!
Products!!! It helps put $$ back into our economy. It would blow your mind what we have been outsourcing and importing! It's about time we bring industrial manufacturing back to the U.S.A.
