I never pay more than $1.99/10 lbs. and rarely that, since I make it a point to buy them when it's .99/10 lbs. Of course, I live in Idaho, where our license plates proclaim Famous Potatoes. But those Famous Potatoes are all grown in southern Idaho, and our transportation patterns don't work that way. Most of mine come out of the Columbia basin of Washington (Tri-Cities, Yakima, etc.). I'm working on a .99 sack right now.
