There are several reasons the cost has gone up. One is the cost of gasoline. Those things are heavy and expensive to ship. There must be a limited supply and some dealers have been hoarding them in storage for forty years. It has gotten more difficult to find ones that have been stored correctly. I used to open up each ammo can that would come on a pallet and each one that had a bad seal would be subtracted before determining the actual cost per can.
Regardless, they are overpriced by about $10 and they should eat some profit to keep their reputation as being a store that will give its customers a fair deal.
