Why are high pressure cans cheaper than low pressure?

    In my country (the Netherlands) most high pressure cans are cheaper than low pressure.


    molotow high pressure is € 0,30 cheaper than molotow premium
    mtn hardcore is € 0,20 cheaper than mtn 94
    montana black is € 0,20 cheaper than montana gold

    The amount of paint is the same. In the molotow high pressure and premium I think the valve system is also the same.

    Does it have to do with the scale in which the cans are made?

    Why is this?

    High pressure are more drippy then low pressure so they probably made them cheaper so they get better sales on them, low pressure is the best.

    Regular cans at my walmart a $3.95 but the high pressures are $4 dollars and some tax hp cans usually have more paint inside them to make up for the hp. They will run out fast though it you bomb alot with them.

    there's less paint in a high pressure can cuz they gotta have more room for the extra propelent. I think that's what it is but i'm not sure

    Underhand will be more drippy then reduced demand so one of these possibly produced them less costly so one of these advance sales to them, reduced demand is the better.

    A 400ml(might be in fluid ounces in US?) can of hardcore, 94, montanna black etc contains 400 ml of paint. The ml does not include the gas propellant.

    High pressure cans run out quicker as they expel the paint quicker.

    No idea why the cost different. I think it will be due to demand.
