I'm trying to get into the electrical contracting business. I haven't done the work in the last 5 years so I was kind of stunned at how prices are in some of the material I have to purchase. Well it just went even higher!!!!! Especially copper prices. Back last Febuary when I started back in business I couldn't believe a box of 12-2 romex was $76 bucks for 250 ft. Shortly after buying my first box it went up to $84 bucks. Yesterday I purchased another box and it has gone up to $91 bucks. Anyone out there looking to build a new house or make home repairs better do it now or start purchasing the material before it goes up again.
