Almost ANY merger WILL only increase the cost to the customers, because they are cutting down the competition of the products they sell and can UP their prices almost as much as they think they can because without competition, they can almost just set their prices as high as they want, because they eliminated their competition. The reason our costs are kept down is because of competition, because they have to compete to keep their customers coming back when they want their products.
