What madness is this? 70-200mm f/2.8L (non-IS) question

I'm looking to get back into photography as a hobby and see a 70D in my future.  With my previous camera (20D) I had the non-IS 70-200 2.8. Imagine my surprise when I go to look for them and find ridiculous prices!

Why is the 70-200mm f/2.8L USM (non-IS) so damned expensive?? When I bought mine it was for $1200 brand new, now you can't find the things for less than $1600! And I'd hoped that the new Mk II version would have brought the price of the IS Mk I down - but they're damn near the same price! What madness is this?
