Default why GMPD shipping fee is so high?

Well, my "check engine" went on today.
Have it check at atutozone and it was the front O2 sensor.
Got a Bosh @ atuozone for $65.

I decided to do a search here before I put it on. After reading so many posts, I changed my mind -- I should get an AC Delco from GMPD!

Here is the bill:
Well, I am sure the sell cheaper than dealers but do they always charge so much for shipping? O2 sensor weights less than 1 lb....
GM Part #25312203
Description: SENSOR-OX
Pack Qty 1
Unit Price $62.65
SUBTOTAL:
$62.65
PROCESSING & HANDLING TOTAL:
$13.78
TAXES:
$0.00
ORDER TOTAL:
$ 76.43

Seems a bit high, but it'* still cheaper than the dealer, and you don't have a Bosch that would fail in 30 days.

Also try doing a search on ebay for your O2. Mine is on there for super cheap, but I have an 89.

You guys have no idea what it is like to be raped on shipping charges. Since I'm Canadian, lots of companies in the US see the shipping charges as a way to make some profit. It can get annoying when someone asks for $40 US to ship an air filter, via economy fed ex.
