Copper wire stealing is rampant here in Los Angeles. There have been tons of stories on thieves getting electrocuted from trying to steal wire while it's still connected.

Wasn't it only a few years ago that copper prices had majorly dropped because of the excess of recycled copper wire? Are prices going back up? Are we using more copper? If so, for what? New house construction has dropped off too, so power and water isn't as much of an issue.
