Why do restaurants serve vegetable oil spread instead of butter?

Admittedly, I don't live in a part of the country known for fine dining and perhaps this isn't a problem at nicer restaurants but, I am so tired of getting those packages labeled vegetable oil spread that I tote my own butter with me. I'm just curious to hear from restaurant owners or food buyers as to why restaurants do this. Is it cheaper or do the patrons prefer it perhaps? Why not offer both?
