x2... Especially in those thicknesses? What are you making?
Its probably an issue of supply. 1/4" and 3/16" sheets aren't really common for stainless, compared with thinner stuff. So it might not be that linear of a cost scale, for that particular company.
I'd call a local steel yard to shop that around.
