When I was buying butts in Omaha I was normally paying about 1.69 or so at the wall hell. In Plattsmouth where I'm living now there is a small grocery that regularly has sale price of .99. I stocked up for sausage and got 8 7-9 pounders the last time. Spares are goin 1.29 right now too. But I stocked up on them the last time too!
