cost for under cabinet lighting (kitchen)

Anyone mind sharing their costs for under cabinet lighting? We are looking at a puck light every foot or so in our kitchen. On rough estimate this is around 16 lights at a quoted upcharge of $200 per light. I feel like $3200 is a ridiculous number for under cabinet lighting in a 17 x 12 U shaped kitchen, but it wouldn't be the first time I was naive when it came to our costs.

Thanks in advance.
