"Polyethylene shed $.01/lb in slow and nervous trading. PE demand fell silent as sharply lower energy and feedstock prices had buyers sensing lower resin prices ahead. There was a modest increase in resin availability this past week; LDPE and LLDPE film grades have become easier to source. However, Polyethylene reactor issues have kept overall resin supplies fairly tight"
