Chris, I don't think that copper is really any more "scarce" than it was 10 years ago. The demand has certainly skyrocketed and driven the prices up. Countries like China have been buying up a lot of metals like lead and copper. As fast as they can find sources. The main reason a coil of copper wire costs $75 in the stores now is mainly because of China.
