Default I Was Told I Need To Use Only Nissan Power Steering Fluid...True/False?

My mechanic said I had a power steering leak, and he didn't have the right fluid for it. He told me I had to go to the dealer for Nissan Power Steering Fluid. This sounded stupid to me, and I don't like spending extra $$ unless I have to. And as we all know the dealers are a rip off. What do you guys think?
