I ran out of duct tape so I went to my trusty Amazon prime to get a new one. And I was surprised. How is buying two duct tapes more expensive than buying one ($10.15>$8.24)? It is a 22% increase in unit price! Even 3 pack and 6 pack are more expensive than buying 1 pack. Screw economics of scale and buying in bulk.

Not sure what happened but amusing to see that economics of scale has been punched in the face. Also, pretty cool to capture absurd pricing.
