stretch film pricing 1.8.2013

Polyethylene prices edged a penny higher when January rolled in. Strong exports helped producers eliminate excess inventories and the New Year began tightly supplied. While the flow of fresh railcars has yet to show, we expect them to be priced up the full $.05/lb increase nominated for January. At least one producer has already floated another $.04/lb increase for February, others will likely follow suit.
