	** *Cement Remains in Short Supply While Consumption Increases*

According to the Portland Cement Association (PCA), Skokie, Ill., cement is in short supply in portions of 35 states. And where there is a shortage, the PCA says, the reasons typically are twofold: strong cement demand from residential construction activity, and not enough ships to bring in imported cement.

The PCA indicates in its Fall Forecast that for 2004, portland cement consumption will reach 112 million tons, a 4.4-percent gain from the previous year. Gains of 2.9 percent and 2.1 percent are forecast for 2005 and 2006, respectively. For more information, visit <>.
