Default Shop Around

Quarter inch red striping tape:
Horizon (Hangar 9) 48 feet: $13.58 plus shipping
O'Reiley Auto Parts (40 feet): $4.09 including tax

The O'Reiley selection was not that great, however......
IMHO the O'Reiley stuff is easier to work with especially around curves and can be lifted and repositioned easily until firmly pressed down.
YMMV.

Yup. I made that "discovery" over 25 years ago. Auto stores have a superior collection of colors, widths, and lengths, too.
