All metal prices have come down due to the global recession. Copper is much cheaper than it was for a while. Scrap yards and recycling centers are losing money or not selling do to lack of demand.

My buddy owns a scrap yard, I could get the latest prices if anyone is interested. I'd just need to know what you are looking for...

Copper tubing prices at HD / Lowes were absolutely ridiculous there for awhile. I suspect some of the LHBS stores are getting pinched as well. I know the one by me makes/sells their own chillers, and if they had bought the tubing while the prices were high, they pretty much have to sell them at that price, or take a huge hit.
