Value is eternal and intrinsic Price is arbitrary and constructed. Haggle over the price to the extent it is of value in your life. No more No less.
The value of any substance on this planet is the same all the time in all the places for all people.
Price is something that is constructed by the economics which have been followed from the days of the barter community to the contemporary Bitcoin community and all the others forms that came in between them.
For example the value of 1 kg of tomato is the same in rural India to the fancy Mall in Mumbai or Delhi to America or Europe or New Zealand for that matter.
Nutritional value is what is useful for a human being. That nutritional value will decline as nature plays its role over a period of time. This is the reality for or any and every material on the planet that we can think of.
Price is a construct and an artificial non existent concept created by the forces of demand and supply. Add to it the confusing realms of duties Taxes, freight packaging branding and many many such stuff which you all are more familiar with. The net result of all that they do is make your life complicated and confusing. I am going to help you disentangle from all the clutter and move towards resolution.
It is for each one of us for himself to decipher, understand and identify the value of each and every element which comes into contact with him in his daily life.

Having more than you need material,time, knowledge,relationships. Create a buffer of affluence and not worry about the Price but focus on the value of each thing in your life looking at it from your own sweet spot. Comparing yourself with others copying others or trying to outdo others will always bring pain. Know your position and value your haggling needs for the price and act accordingly.
