The article reports on the correlation between high costs and demand for aluminum during fiscal 2005 in the U.S. While any increase in demand for aluminum has been slight other than in the red-hot aerospace market, next year is expected to be better, since so much of the excess inventory has been worked out of the system and a surge in demand is imminent as the hurricane-ravaged Gulf Coast begins to rebuild.
