Default Historical commodity prices

How do I look up the price of lead or silicon 4 years ago? Basically I'm trying to find a graph much like you'd see on google finance but instead of stocks it would be prices of raw material.

seems like a good link. but to use the custom charts i'll have to study the naming conventions.

it isn't immediately apparant to me how to get historical commodity futures price moves.
