scrap metal prices

My dad is getting rid of a bunch of his car junk *mostly government motors product* and some of it he's letting go saying he'll take scrap metal price for it. My question is what are the scrap metal prices in your area. I haven't had a chance to call here and see what they'd pay for a cast iron block yet but I'm just curious to see how our rates compare with anyone elses. That, and I'm trying to get my BF a good price on his new project.

When I took my little load of junk in, steel/iron/mixed was 1 cent per lb. (Los Angeles)

This site quotes rates, looks like .21-.43 lb, keep in mind this is by the truckload or rail car or cargo ship, I can't tell, but it's not for a bag of tin cans:

It also depends on the yard.. I got 200 a ton for cast a few weeks ago, and had to take it 35 miles away, while the one right here 1 mile away was around 80 a ton... cars are anywhere from 40 to 60 a ton here.

If you got alot of scrap, I would get rid of it now. Because once all these vehicles under the wonderful Cash for Clunkers starts hitting the scrap yards, I'll be the price will fall.
