The going rate for steel in the Denver area is about 30 cents per pound in full sheets and full-length bars. Figure 1/4" plate at 10 pounds per square foot. I pay about $30 for a 48" x 96" sheet of 11 ga. Find a metal fab shop and see if they'll do you better. You can buy cheaper if you have a registered business name and a sales tax license for resale. I buy fabricated parts used in my manufacturing business (small quantities, about 300-600 pounds per order), and they charge me close to 30 cents per pound plus machine/shop time at $60 per hour for NC punch work, shearing, and other shop work.

The prices look close to what I'd expect to pay as a casual customer at a local yard.
Sounds like you're getting hit with a hefty cutting charge on the 7" dia. If the exact dimensions are not critical, you might save some money by looking for a drop that will work for you.
