A couple of years ago I was in a shop that sells bearings and found Tri-Flow chain lube in big bottles cheap, like 16oz for $12 and 1 gallon for $35 as I recall. If you grab the 2oz bottle top with a pliers, it pops right out for easy re-filling, so 16oz lasted me for years.

I went back yesterday and he was selling 2oz bottles for $1 each! He said Tri-Flow discourages places like his from selling that size because it degrades their hi-buck bike market. I'm guessing that Tri-Flow's cost for a 2oz bottle that sells for $6 at your LBS (bike shop) is around $0.12.
