What is the approximate cost of painting parking stripes on a typical American city block ?

I live in a downtown area that is high-demand parking, yet for some reason the block I live on does not have parking stripes. This leads to a variety of problems such as disorganized or inefficient parking and safety hazards. I'm willing to save up and donate my own money to get this accomplished, but I'd like to know a ball park figure to shoot for. Lets assume roughly 20 spots on each side of the street, for a total of (roughly) 40 lines.
...and "Yes".. before you ask.. I have made several inquiries and requests to my local city government (embarrassingly, I even work for them and am still not able to get a clear/definitive answer). Incredulously, I've even been told that it's a very specific type of paint.. and is on world-wide backorder. Wat?
