Is it my imagination or do Model Master enamels dry up much faster than they used to?

I know a lot of you folks use acrylics, but being of the old school who have been using Model Master and enamel paints since he was 12 and used his mom's tires to provide the air pressure for his crappy Badger airbrush ( boy was she mad when she couldn't drive on four flat tires!) it seems like the paints dry up much faster than they used to. I find that if I don't use the paint up within a couple of months they dry up, and at 4.00 a bottle, along with the after market parts most of the kits need I won't be able to afford to build kits. The only thing I can think of is the EPA gestapo have taken all the preservatives out of the paint because all us modelers are destroying the planet. Any ideas on this? I just threw away about forty bucks worth of model paint that I bought less than six months ago. If you have suggestions on how to prolong the life of my paint please do tell.
