In brief: Demand
Any open market procedure or product is subject to pricing differences based upon what the public perceives.
Prk started out expensive and got less so when many machines were set up for the procedure. Due to the economy, many of these are now closed and the remainder can charge more. They will lower their prices when their waiting rooms empty out.
