Batteries expensive in England?

I needed about 4 D-cells for my radio (didn't want to mess around with
adapters and such), so I looked around the various shops, supermarkets, etc.

All seemed to be high...4-D cells, which would cost about $5 or so in the US,
was UKP 8, or about $12 in London.

Did I miss anything here?
