Rubbing Alcohol @ $19.99 a Bottle?

I was out doing my Coronavirus/COVID-19 crisis survival shopping today and I was unable to find regular old rubbing alcohol anywhere on the Cape. I must have looked in at least 6 stores.
I’ve been using it recently as a replacement for hand sanitizer. I got home and thought that I’d be smart and buy some online. I found it – on eBay for as little as $19.99 for a 16-ounce bottle. See the screenshot below. This is ridiculous. It ought to be illegal and I think it’s a sin.

Here’s a screenshot from CVS before the crisis. The same-sized bottle sold for $2.59.
