A paucity of Ubuntu disks

I ordered 100 Ubuntu Gutsy disks from ShipIt but was only approved for 10; this continues the trend I’ve noticed, where the number I get sent has been decreasing with each release:

Breezy (version 5.10) 100 shipped/100 requested
Dapper (6.06) 60/100
Edgy (6.10; not offered via ShipIt)
Feisty (7.04) 25/200
Gutsy (7.10) 10/100

I suspect that the reason is because the money to produce the disks for each release is fairly fixed, but the demand keeps going up.
