"however when the price of wire drops and I have loaded up on high priced wire, I do lose money as I have to sell at a loss to be competitive. It is not a good situation for anyone"

You sell you material at cost?, you may take a small margin hit, unless you over stocked, but on items like copper wire, all the supply houses here, buy and sell on an index, pretty hard to take a hit, on up or down pricing.
