Pick a drug and follow the trend in its price.  There's a good chance the price went up in recent years,  up by a lot for a big brand-name drug. 

Drug companies offer a variety of reasons for the increases, and the state of Oregon wants those reasons put out in plain sight.  So the state just opened a Prescription Drug Price Transparency Program to track how much drugs increase in price, and why. 

It even offers consumers a chance to report increases.  A rep from the Department of Consumer and Business Services visits with more information.
