It might be the best price.
As I have posted elsewhere, I used to see these from time to time at flea markets, etc., normally in the $5-$10 range used. Now that I am actively looking I do not see them anywhere, and the price in the link you listed is better than I have found looking online. The average is probably closer to $50 on the web. I have a couple and a flo-n-go duramax 14 gallon tank that lays down in the back of my truck if needed for transport.

They go for as much as $80 on Amazon. https://smile.amazon.com/NATO-Jerry-Can ... to+gas+can

I have 2, forget where I bought them or what I paid. So far, they've done the job every time I've used them.

On the plus side, they pour better than any of the new 'emission controller' gas cans that the .gov has ruined.

On the downside, when they're full, they're HEAVY, and trying to use them to fill something with a small tank would be awkward. (I fill mine before hurricane season and PCS moves, and empty them into my cars.)

One of the very recent reviews (10/2017) convinced me yo have a good find: "All were NATO and made between 1991 and 1998 by Bellino."

So not Chinese fakes.

The US Military settled on the plastic Scepter fuel and water cans from Canada. Due to California exporting bad ideas about fuel can design, the Scepter military fuel cans (MFC) are no longer legally imported for US civilian use and black market prices are redonkulous. Used ones go for $50 or more, New ones on Ebay are $80 and up
