James,

If you wanted to set list price as 30% of average cost, then there is no
direct mechanism. You may need to set the average price for product and
service to do that.
In case product's average cost change then you can create a price rule
action such that Percent Of Average Cost (PRICE_POAC) to 130 percent. Then
system will always sale the product on that rule.
Please refer: Catalog >> Price Rules >> Edit Price Rules >> Action Type
Section.

Current Ecommerce Portal and price engine expect list price always. So
setting list price and adding rule on Average Cost works for you, if I'm
getting your problem correctly.

HTH!
