Dropped a valve cap from one of my car tires a couple of weeks ago. Went looking for some plastic valve caps to replace it.

The local gas station had no valve caps whatsoever. Wal-Mart had some aluminum caps. I bought those, but they cost $2.50 for four.

Used to be you could get four caps for 30 at any place that had automotive supplies, but I'm guessing the cost of shipping has gotten prohibitive.

Amazon had 500 for $5.00. I may order those if I can't find any locally.

Sometimes having trouble adjusting to modern economics.
