Why are $.99 games $1.19?

Why are games that are .99 now (on sale) showing up as 1.19?...and why are some apps showing up as 2.49? Is anyone else seeing this?

Some examples:

http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=312664288&mt=8

Also, I thought Uniwar was 2.99...but it is showing up in iTunes as 3.99:

prices look fine to me. Are you on a different app store with a different currency system?
