High cost to switch to new transcoder

I have my LPT staked but want to move it to a different transcoder. When I run through the process, MetaMask comes up with the attached screenshot, stating that the gas fee is 0.07 ETH with a gas price of 40 GWEI for a Contract Interaction worth 0 ETH.

Why does it cost almost £20/$25 to change validators?


Because of the crazy gas prices these days.
