Relatively.  It’s sand, somewhat processed.  And it carries a lot of bits.  Nothing else carries a lot of bits.  So, since it’s the only option that actually carries lots of bits, it’s sorta academic how much it costs relative to other things, that don’t carry lots of bits.  So, yes, less than a penny a strand-foot is cheap.
