This disgusts me. I understand supply and demand, but I also understand disgusting greed, gouging and just taking advantage.
In 2021, Amazon made $14.3 BILLION in PROFITS.
To put that in perspective, if you multiplied 200,000 people times the AVERAGE yearly income of an American....it would be LESS than $14.3 BILLION.
JUST SAYING. I shop shitty Amazon as an absolute last resort.
