1.
when the price for something is sky high, because the manufacturer knows you need it and have no choice but to pay for it. stems from gas stations on highways in the middle of fucking nowhere who charge $10 for a 2 year old microwave burrito because they know the next gas station is 150 miles down the road.
Person 1-"Man, I paid $50 for 3 gallons of gas, a pack of gum, and a soda last night at this gas station in bumfuck Egypt"

Person 2- "Talk about highway robbery!"
