    Default Chnese lead

    Anyone here about the worldwide coming shortage of lead-acid batteries due to factory and mine closures in china?
    Besides shortaged, it is predicted that the price of lead will soon double to nearly $3k per ton.

    China may go the way of the Roman empire...( poisoned by the lead in their wine flasks):

    Just bought some Motorcraft batteries for my diesel pickup at O Reilly's. They are made by Johnson Controls in Mexico. But even that is no good if the Mexican factory can't get the lead.
