I pay about $0.17 per foot for 250 foot rolls of #12-3-G NM Cable (Romex), and about a half cent less for 1000' reels.

#12-2-G NM is about $0.10 per ft. for 250' rolls and $0.096 for 1000' reels.

That is about as low as it gets here...
Copper prices do fluctuate a lot.

Anybody else? It would be interesting to compare prices...
