Inflation, mostly. Tonnes of products are rising in price by 5% or more per year, especially in America, where they've been absolutely flooding the market with currency after the 2008 financial crisis. If you want cheaper sticks, buy cheaper sticks. You can get a bad stick for as little as $20, and plenty of decent sticks can be found at roughly $100.
