I feel your frustration and I am sorry this happened to you.
Here is Amazon's explanation.
"Items in your Shopping Cart will always reflect the most recent price displayed on the item's product detail page. Please note that this price may differ from the price shown for the item when you first placed it in your cart. Placing an item in your cart does not reserve the price shown at that time. It is also possible that an item's price may decrease between the time you place it in your cart and the time you purchase it."Amazon.com: Help*>*Payment, Pricing & Promotions*>*Pricing
