Absurd price increase to $93.50 for an OEM WK lower radiator hose?

WTF? I bought a '05 WK 5.7L lower radiator hose 55116868AB for $18.85 in 2008 for my project, and have the receipt. Now the same part number is showing retail at $93.50 MSRP! Same dealer I bought original from said his computer shows it was *always* that expensive, LOL) similar increase for lower hose..

Item Number MSRP Core Price Price
55116868AB $93.50 $0.00 $67.88 Cooling system - Radiator - Lower hose
Lower hose, grand cherokee - 5.7l, 6.1l 2005 - 2006

55116868AB $93.50 $0.00 $67.88 Cooling system - Radiator - Lower hose
Lower hose, commander - 5.7l 2006 - 2008
