I am in the UK too and get green tripe for around 50p per Kilo. About 23p per lb. Which is about $0.78 per lb for our american friends.
It would be worth going to a butcher in your area and ask them to get tripe, even if it is just once a month, a lot of butchers will actually give it away for free! (try the slightly posher high end butchers for free tripe - unfortunately my nearest one is too far away so with the travel it is still cheaper to buy it from my butcher)
You can still get the majority of your meat from the supermarket but I'm sure there is one butcher near you, they can order in things like tripe especially for you once a month. You may also be better off from a price point of view going to them as they will give discounts on regular orders, because I go to my butcher 2 - 3 times per week, I get it at about half the price.
Asking around and trying to strike up a deal is the best thing.
