Question Why are prem brand prices skyrocketing?

But the store bundles, factory seconds and maybe 2nd tier brands..are staying around the same price point?
I understand you pay more for a premium brand name, with fancy packaging, advertising.
But it seems those lines are getting more..and more expensive. But the bundle, and store brands, and "off brands" seem to be holding their price line.

It's just creating a much wider gulf between these brands and the premiums.

If the new taxes are causing prices to rice, why is it mostly on the premium lines?
It's not an optical illusion, it just looks like one.
