2 rolls of tape

I finally ran out of tape rolls. Went to but some and WYF? $9 bucks for 2 rolls of tape?

PS: I'm talking about this:



Is Amazon doesn't help me, I'm gonna start using my nose as my source of adhesive material.

I'll bet I could walk into x's place of work and get 2 rolls of tape for $2. What kind of overinflated Floridian store are you going to there?

I've got a cool RubenCarShop TM. project for the Hyundai.
A duct tape+storm window sliding moon roof.

Most of the materials are right at the rental home
