Covid is the excuse. Its a bullshit excuse, but its what they want us to believe. This applies to nearly all materials including steel, wood, and other building materials like rock. The reality is that the world is in a panic and its the perfect time for companies to jack the prices around and see how bad they can screw the consumer.
