Well, the mfr only has two options. Either keep the weight or amount the same and raise prices or reduce the weight or amount and keep the price the same. High fuel prices and the like affect more than just you and your gasoline.
Bottom line, it all comes down to the consumer. All you have to do is read the package before purchasing. If the consumer is to stupid to read the packages and compare weight vs price among the different products and vendors then they have no one to blame but themselves.
