By <$2 (USD), I mean it can be $0.20, like the Dale CMF/RN metal-film that I'm currently looking at. Also looking at Ohmite, both the metal film and carbon comp. My budget can stretch till $2.

As they're meant for building attenuators - just a simple 2-resistor potential divider, I'm not sure if I can live with 5% tolerance of the Ohmites unless I hand-match them. On the other hand Dales are available @ 0.1% for 50 cents.

From a non-snake-oil perspective, is carbon comp better or worse than carbon film?
