According to 12/98 Container Recycling Report (p. 2):

"As already is happening in the soft drink industry, the new plastic
beer bottle could lessen any likelihod of aluminum's stranglehold on the
beer industry. Richard Evans, president of Alcan Aluminum, in an interview
in Platt's Metals Week, figures that if aluminum cansheet gets above 90
cents per pound 'aluminum is at a disadvantage in beverage containers
vis-a-vis plastic.'"
