Yeah well, tell me what isn't cheaper when you buy it in bulk. What you're actually paying for is the convenience of having a nice, little, managable package at a reasonable distance from your home. What would you do with a ton of pea gravel in Ohio anyhow? ;)

that's the thing you do not have to buy a ton. you can by it by the LB they Divide the cost of 1 ton by 2000 which is .000725 per lb times however many lbs you buy.100 lbs is like 7 cents.
