8 foot rip-offs!

I know this was mentioned in the other post, but I saw for myself the latest prices for 8' tubes at over a tenner a piece! That's over £1.25 per foot! I know these tubes take up a lot of space and hence storage and transport costs but these prices? Looks like Sylvania are cashing in on this since having a monopoly on these tubes! If you see any going cheap, pounce on them or post a note up so those using them can go get 'em!

Tell me about it! This time last year i was paying £2.99 per lamp from agency lighting! Then in the last year they have gone through the roof, Not to mention that the quality has gone down! Hense i am annoyed about it all!
