Red Hat and Academic subscriptions...

This is not intended as a flame, but why does the cost of academic subscriptions continue to rise? Since I work in academia, I have been buying academic subscriptions since 2000. See below for what I have paid over the last 11 years.

2000-2006 $50 per server
2007-2011 $60 per server
2012 $80 per server

I'm at the point of having to renew my 2012 subscriptions as of last week, but at $80 I am seriously thinking of migrating over to CentOS. There is no support with the academic subscriptions, so why the significant jump in price this year?
