Default Cheap Apple Juice in LA?

Howdy all,
I just recently moved down to Los Angeles and I'm looking to get some Apfelwein going. However, I looked far and nigh and it seems apple juice is ridiculously expensive in this town. The best deal I found was Mott's @ $3.50 a gallon at Target. I've looked at Vons, Jons, Ralphs, Albertsons, Gelsons, Trader Joes and most of their juice runs around $5.00 a gallon.

Any locals have a good juice connection? Or, will I have to pony up and pay the premium?

Not sure I've seen it any lower than $3.50, even at Costco.

If you want to save some cash use frozen concentrate.

$3.50 is expensive? Around here you won't find even rot gut applejuice less than $4.99 a gallon.

Thanks Gratus, I bought a bunch of juice at Walmart last night... didn't realize it wasn't a full gallon till I got home, but it still works out to be something like $2.67 a gallon.

Evil, I moved down from Eugene and I used to get Albertson's brand juice for about 2.50 a gallon. Maybe it's just PDX?

Crenshaw Blvd. Down around West Adams. Hope that makes sense, since I'm still quite new to this city.

Welcome to SoCal. I think there is a LHBS up there somewhere, not sure where. The place I use is Stein Fillers in Long Beach. It's a meh at best.

I went to the LHBS in Culver City for some dry yeast and some airlocks and wasn't too impressed. I think I may be spoiled from living in Eugene. There I could walk to two different shops that were open till 9pm 7 days a week that always had uber fresh products (they'd call me and I'd get my Maris Otter right from the truck).
