I agree that many prices on Amazon will jump to $2.99 soon*. The reason being that if you price your book at $2.99, Amazon will (soon*) pay you about $1.99 on each sale, whilst if you price it as $2.95, Amazon will only pay $1.03.
This is because the new pricing model they're shortly* introducing only applies to books between $2.99 to $9.99 inclusive.
There's a lot of confusion about this option at the moment, because Amazon don't seem to have said a word about it since their press release in January.
