Welcome to capitalism, the free market, human nature...take your pick.
Consumer goods and services in a free market society that is not under a monopoly will naturally find a balance between what companies need to charge to cover their costs and make a profit, and what consumers are willing to pay.
I'll be happy to prove them wrong, when the prices get unreasonable I walk.
So, with that logic since you presumably aren't walking now after this raise, then you find the price not unreasonable. Interesting.
