I have wondered the same thing - about TP. Have come to the conclusion that it is because so many people are at home instead of working and using the mega-rolls of TP where they work.

The manufacturers either have not or cannot re-vamp their manufacturing lines to make small, household-sized rolls. I bet there is a ton of single-ply mega-rolls sitting somewhere. People would be happy to unroll them by hand although they might not like the single ply. :)
