I purchased .5" ID from Mcmaster-Carr for 1.82 per foot. I reuse my tubing and have no plans to dispose of it unless it breaks, so I'm comfortable with the $10-$15 investment if it saves me the hassle of vinyl.
To answer the OP's question about if that vinyl is the kind to use, I would say that it is, because it's food safe.
