Keep fantasizing. It really has to hit $1.65 before money is made by the producers. Look at raw cost. Look at process costs. Look at shipping. look at distributor costs.
The only way prices stay down at all is if the distributor calculates tha selling under costs makes the distributor sell ancillary stuff at a better profit. That's been a model in the Northwest for years.

Where people have to step back is to look at how many dollars are getting tied up in a single piece. The higher price for the finished piece, the less it matters. On little stuff, it's a major problem.
