You should be able to do better than that. Find yourself a Berkshire Wire distributor and buy from them. Berkshire wire is in Western, MA and can direct you to a distributor in your area.
Just for grins:
10/2 = My Price $0.88 ft. (Berkshire)
10/2 = West Marine
$3.29 ft. (Ancor)
10/2 is a 276% increase over my cost.
12/2 = My Price $0.60 ft. (Berkshire)
12/2 = West Marine $2.20 ft. (Ancor)
12/2 is a 267% increase over my cost..
14/2 = My Price $0..43 ft. (Berkshire)
14/2 = West Marine $1.65 ft. (Ancor)
14/2 is a 284% increase over my cost..
2/0 = My Price $4.94 ft.
2/0 = West Marine $14.99
2/0 is a 203% increase over my cost..
P.S. Berkshire makes some of Ancor's wire.....
