I'm not sure there is a "right" answer here. Other factors will play into which is more economical. Prices fluctuate based on market activity, availability of materials, etc. There are also longer-term things to think about like maintenance, and even things like delivery charges tothe site. Having said that, both concrete and steel are quite economical when building structures.
