How much does 1.5 lbs. of ribeye steak cost?

Call (or go to) your local market and inquire what they are selling it for per pound.
Around here Ribeye is often on sale for $4.99 lb. Safeway has the best!! So.....1 1/2 lb. would be roughly $7.50 ! :)
It fluctuates wildly. I've seen it anywhere from $1.99 per pound to $6.99. Your best bet is to save up and buy a quarter or half of beef from a small ranch. Then you get all the cuts for a set price per pound, and better beef too!
It depends what part of country you are in. I'm in Chicago, seems to be a bit more reasonable here then in the other 3 directions, E,W,S, I'm North guys! On average, not on sale, mid quality, 12-13.00/ LB.on sale 8-11.00/LB. Really good quality on sale should run 10/lb hope that helps.
For quality beef with the ribeye cut right off the prime rib roast, expect to pay $15-40 a pound. Our restaurant sells a 14 oz. for $32.00. You can find meats in the "butcher's deal" section of stores that are on sale because their shelf life is almost up. This is a great way to save up to 75% of meat if you are planning to cook or freeze it ASAP.
I always buy the chuck eye steaks. They have the same flavor as a ribeye at a fraction of the cost. Don't make the mistake my boyfriend did and buy chuck steak though...lol...need a chainsaw to eat. Bonus is the chuckeye is always a small cut so we eat more veggies like we should!
