Ever could be tough to figure. In recent history, I know you could pick up popular varieties like Cascade for ~$6/lb back before the shortage (2006/2007).

$8.75/lb for Cascade pellets on hopsdirect is not much more expensive than before the shortage

Have you seen the prices at Hopsdirect lately? If you're talking LHBS, of course they won't, if they're the only one in your region no competition leads to know no price drop. But if you're using over 4 oz's of a particular variety of hops? Order from hopsdirect or Niko, guaranteed good deal
