The most recent spot purchase of imported sulphuric acid was in the low-$60s/tonne ex-terminal CFR, according to a source involved in the deal.

Prices in the US Gulf had been in the $50-55/tonne ex-terminal CFR range, but in the last few weeks several sources said sellers have been attempting to achieve higher prices despite weak demand for spot tonnes.
