Are tires sold in sets of two (2) or singularly?

I always just assumed tires were sold in sets of two. I do realize people use different tires for their front/back wheel on occasion, want a spare etc (all of these reasons would warrant selling them singularly) BUT, I assumed they were sold in sets.

I ask this because I bought a new set of tires today and was surprised by the price. Walking out I realized he rung up each tire separately.

I bought Gator Skins, I realize they are nicer tires (going to be more expensive etc) but I hadn't expected $80 for a set of tires.

They're separate. Usually good tires will range between 30-50 EACH, so $80 for a set is pretty normal.

They wear at different rates, so you'd want to buy them individually.

And I get my tires for about $15 a piece.
