Because there is a difference between actual costs for creating a publication (either e or p) and marketing-based decisions that result in a final selling price.

I agree that lower production costs should be reflected in the selling price of an ebook, but unfortunately, many publishers are still convinced that a small market (for ebooks) automatically means that the ebooks should be relatively expensive, in order to get enough revenue to make their business 'sustainable'.
