I may have mentioned this before, but round number
pricing is generally perceived by consumers as higher than
pricing with cents.   Prices ending in 5 or 0 are perceived
as higher than those ending in 7 or 9.

Instead of pricing at $ 7.50, try $ 7.33 or $ 7.66 and see
how consumers in your market respond.

Good luck at market.
