I find it in the Automotive section at my local Ace for use on car
door hinges and latches I assume. Ace website says it is $1.99.

 I've had a tube of white lithium grease in the shop for years and
years now, mostly to lubricate things I want the grease to stick to,
as opposed to bearings and such that get oil. Didn't know about the
sticks, and will look for them next time the local ACE hardware calls
(which is at least weekly-;-)

 I really like White Lithium Crayons like this for vises:

 It is not sticky and will not trap dust or other filings. Just rub
the end along the thread and any wear points. It is essentially white
lithium grease in a wax binder.
