Can someone explain what I'm missing with the steel/aluminum price increase?
This is the steel price per pound index:

Prices have gone up recently but are lower than the past six years

Here is aluminum price index:

Aluminum makes sense but is still close to price in 2014.

Are tariffs actually effecting prices? Or is this just companies using it as an excuse to increase price?
