Seems to me a fine case of price gouging.
Price gouging is a pejorative term referring to a situation in which a seller prices goods or commodities much higher than is considered reasonable or fair. In precise, legal usage, it is the name of a crime that applies in some of the United States during civil emergencies.
Though some say this is a good thing, as normal pricing will just allow people to hoard.....what says ATS?
