I would disagree. I imagine the cost includes a fixed overhead plus a charge per volume. Plotting the cost vs volume for both sized medium and large boxes and performing a linear extrapolation leads to an expected cost of about $4.92 for the small box, which is reasonably accurate. The fixed overhead then appears to be around $3.85 per box.
