MSRP stands for "Minimum Suggested Retail Price", and is only a guideline for dealers concerning issues like Co-Op allowances. Charging more is neither illegal or against dealers' contract with Nikon, etc.

"Price gouging" laws vary from state to state, but typically only apply to staples needed for survival (e.g. food and gasoline).

MSRP. The S stands for "suggested". Retailers can legally charge whatever they wish in the US. Fair trade, on this type of goods, went away in the 70's.
