Looking for less expensive paint.. online stores, maybe?

Hello, all... I need to pick your collective brains, if I may...

I recently went to a local paint shop to A) decipher my paint color, and to B)
buy some of the aforementioned paint. Part A was solved easily.. my truck's color is Hatteras Green Metallic. Part B.. wellllllll....
I did buy a Spray can at 23 dollars, because it is acrylic... old school stuff that took the guy 20 minutes to mix up.. a gallon?? 245 dollars.. I was wondering if you guys could tell me if there is a less expensive paint shop out there somewhere.. I do want to use the original type of paint, obviously, LOL
Should I be shopping online?

Online sucks because of the shipping. There goes your savings. I usaully use Omni, which is the budget line of PPG. I painted with it a few times and for the price, it's not bad. I paid 80 dollars for three quarts of a high pearl base coat. I buy the stuff at my local Carquest.
