Just wondering if copper prices around the country are the same as here.
I pick up on the fact that a lot of you guy's seem to prefer avoiding home depot, but here they seem to beat my suppliers by 20-30% on copper. Here in Philadelphia we use alot of copper, (required for anything commercial or reidential 4 units and above. Fittings are a diffrent story, they tend to be a-lot higher.

I'm just curious if the supplier's elsewhere are competitive on copper price's. I just picked up 2500' yesterday for a resturant job. 1/2" thru 2" and saved about 800.00 on the order compared to what my supplier could sell it for. It just dosen't seem right. (example 10' 3/4" L ), my suppliers price 14.35, I paid 11.90 2.50 a stick X 100 peices is significant
