Barbara, while I don't know the recipe, it costs so much because PE has
been the only supplier (good old monopoly capitalism).  However, there
are now some other companies making 10X 3700 buffer (the Gel company is
one of them) who are selling their buffer at a more reasonable price. 
We didn't have good luck with the first sample they sent to us, but they
may have it right by now.  As competetition enters the market, we may
see the prices for 3700 parts and reagents (capillaries, 10X, LPA) come
down.
