 I just left my local lumber yard and found the following:

With oil soaring again, and my local pump prices on the rise and $3.50 regular predicted by Memorial Day, the following was quoted to me:

Framing Lumber:

2×6x10" UP 12%

2×4x10" UP 5%

2×10x12" UP 5%

2×8x10" UP

Plywood:

4'x8' sheets of plywood: 1/2" CDX (construction sheathing grade) MINUS 7%

5/8" CDX (construction sheathing grade) MINUS 4%

Shingles:

30 year dimensional grade ( 3 bundles equals 100 Sq. Ft. of coverage)

UP 7% and more increases expected…

With oil over 80 and likely to climb this will be terrible for the upcoming construction season. I have a large garage to build and pre-bought all materials before last Winter set into my area. Glad I did this. It's hard to figure prices for upcoming jobs due to upswings in materials. I can feel those dogs nipping at my heels!
