I pay $1.50 per b.f for air dried quartersawn white oak. Compare that to $5.85 in my area for kiln dried qswo in my area. Of course I have to finish drying it in a dehumidification kiln for two weeks, but heck it saves me over $2000 per 500 b.f. of lumber.
Green lumber by contrast takes at least a year to dry.
For resale lumber, your supplier is priced right.
