As we continue our review of the best of 2020, let’s take a quick look back at the top aluminum stories of the year.

Previously, we reviewed the most-viewed posts of the year overall and the most-viewed steel-centric posts of the year.

Today, we’ll take a look at aluminum, which has also been on the rise in the second half of the year. The LME three-month price bottomed out at $1,460 per metric ton in April. Since then, however, the price has surged, reaching as high as $2,062 per metric ton in early December.

Before we turn the page, let’s first take a look back at the best of 2020.
