Here in Colorado, there is almost as much cement produced as there is used. We are one of the only states in that situation. Much of it is produced by cemex. This has kept prices down and supply up. Not a bad thing, even if it is mexican.

I thought alot comes in on rail from North Dakota ? Theres a fine line between the water and the fishing pole !

That is probably the case, because even though a lot is produced, a lot is also exported out of state.
