/////It is possible that speculators are keeping the prices up and because the economy is still sluggish, there is little demand and so inventories grow. This is the opposite to what would normally be expected with supply-demand//////

no speculators, no artificial price jacking
let supply demand work like it should, revive this ecomanie PROSPER! then supply demand will kick the price up on its own

okay!
