    Default Price check on hot rolled strip steel

    I just picked up 1pc of 1/4 x 4 x 20ft.....$67. I don't purchase a lot of this, how far outta whack is that from what you pay?
    This is 68 Lbs, so $.98 per pound.

    It varies according to shape. Seems a little steep to me, but that's wider than I usually get.

    If all you bought was one piece of steel that doesn't help either. I. Know I pay the same $10 fuel surcharge whether it's one stick or a hundred. It's also still $10 even though fuel is half the price it was when they instituted the charge.

    Sounds reasonable for one stick.

    I just ordered a few sheets of AR500F today and paid right at $1 a pound for hard alloy.

    I would expect 1/4" x 4" to A36 be around $0.50 a pound starting around a few hundred to 1000 lbs.
