I don't know what to tell you; mine all scanned at $1.26, even at the price check scanners. Each quart, however, did have a clearance-type price label stuck to the bottles.
But they all scanned at $1.26! Maybe it's a local, SoCal thing---since temps don't get down very low (except in the high deserts overnight), there probably wasn't a big demand. There may not even be much of it left here in SoCal, but it there is, I'LL FIND IT, because "I'm axjohn, and I'm a BITOGholic"
