The irony is that in America we have both states and cities that have higher and lower population density. As we all know, higher density lowers the cost per sq mi.
Therefore, there isn't any rational reason as to why highly populated states (Texas, Cali, and NY) do not have a range of competitors (options).
Which is why it all comes down to the market being deliberately manipulated and skewed in their favor - to maximize profits. It's no different to organized crime eliminating competition.
