Well, if it's supply and demand, it would be called "capitalism" - however it's not, since I've seen prices that don't have much of a link to supply/demand take off. Price gouging. But, I mean, salsa? Mrs. Wife just noted that one of the local bagel bakeries just jacked up it's price massively to $1.50/ea. Personally, I'd let them keep 'em until they rot. Will the others follow with the price hike (take-it-or-leave-it) or will business decline enough to punish them or, as is all to common, take the other "CP" route: Complain and Pay.

In the context of a particular brand you like they might think "they have you!" but since they're competing with a ton of other salsa brands, I don't see how they get away with it.

Some (non-online) items I but are suffering a bit from COVID, but we're talking about maybe 25% more the lowest "on-sale" price. It's all a magic mystery.
