Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
actually, there is some of the 'profit taking' at play.  But, there is also a global price increase going on with all capital projects -- raw materials skyrocketing in price (PRC+ demand), shortages in industrial capacity for many components (globally), etc ...

The "cost" increase is only, imo, partially attributable to people 'gouging' system (but, after all, isn't capitalism about trying to maximize profits?).
