Default Why the price difference?

Just curious if anyone knows why the price jump from 11ga to 3/16 is way bigger than the price jump from 3/16 to 1/4"?

This is from metalsdepot.com, btw. I'm just kicking ideas around for right now, but curious why the prices would be so different? And yes, I know getting it locally will be MUCH cheaper.

P514 1/4 (.250) thick T304 Stainless Steel Smooth Plate - Dull 4 X 8 Ft. 1 In Stock $1,856.96 $1,856.96
P5316 3/16 (.1875) thick T304 Stainless Steel Smooth Plate - Dull 4 X 8 Ft. 1 In Stock $1,427.52 $1,427.52
S411 11 GA. (.120+/-) thick T304 Stainless Steel Sheet - Dull Mill Finish 4 X 8 Ft. 1 In Stock $838.40 $838.40


Oh, and how much of a difference will there be in strength and durability? Piercing resistance, abrasion resistance, etc.
