Pot calling kettle black?

If I understand this correctly...

"Price Fixing" involves more than 1 actor, agreeing to set the price of an item higher than is reasonable or fair for the market.

"Price Gouging" involves at least 1 actor, setting the price of an item higher than is reasonable or fair for the market.

Anyone bought HP Printer Ink recently?
