What time of year do you buy chemicals?

Postby mknmike » Thu 01 Dec, 2022 14:12

I noticed Bromine 50 lbs buckets going over $460 in this past summer while I’d bought it for ~$240 around July 2021. It seemed like it was expensive all year this year, but dropped to $308 after I bought some a few weeks ago for $360. Will it go lower?

When do you buy your chemicals? Are some much more susceptible to seasonal changes? Or is most of it just supply and demand with factories going down throughout the country or world?
