At Jersey Shore auto parts shops I paid about $6.50 w tax., not $3.
Everything with a Permatex name on it is pricey. But, the thread locker in tiny tubes will last for years.
I purchased the windshield sealer not for a complete ridgeline or windshield job, but for a leak at at a pull-out. As stated, I was disappointed that Permatex didn't help the buyer to preserve the unused portion, that's all. Some packagers supply a spout cap + the original re-sealing cap.
Some adhesive and sealant packagers do better than others. This applies in spades with urethane-based adhesives, which also cure with water vapor, strictly one way, no undoing. If the container doesn't reseal well, you're likely to be stuck with a block of dried super-strong urethane. Gorilla Glue urethane is an example of that.
