Insulating cold water pipes in finished basement

I am finishing my basement (in New Hampshire) and before I wall everything up I am wondering if I need to insulate ALL the cold water copper pipe, some of it or none of it. There was some condensation on the pipes in summer, but this was before any of the XPS or walls were put up.

Insulating cold water pipes in finished basement

Pipe insulation is cheap and works well even with the pipes are well within the conditioned space.

I would do it.
