USGS: Third Quarter Ups and Downs
December 18, 2012 – USGS is just about to report third-quarter production numbers, and the inside scoop is that an estimated 580 metric tons (Mt) of total construction aggregates was produced and shipped for consumption in the United States in the third quarter of 2012, a decrease of 5 percent compared with that of the same period of 2011. That's the bad news. The good news is that the estimated production for consumption in the first 9 months of 2012 was 1.48 billion metric tons (Gt), a slight increase compared with that of the same period of 2011.
