This year Easter comes before Pesach, so hopefully prices will start coming down a little before Pesach.
I have a feeling the drop will happen a few weeks later in the Jewish stores...

It's not in their interest to do that. We buy too many eggs during that season that they wouldn't risk losing all that business. On your average week, someone's going to see a higher price, sigh, and buy it anyway, because it's not worth their time to make another stop for a dozen eggs. When they're buying 15 dozen, that's a different cheshbon.

Doesn't account for package size? In the non-jewish market, That's where the inflation hit. They didn't hike prices, They shrunk the package size.

Paid on sale $35 for box of 15 dozen, $2.33 per dozen. That's likely the lowest end for x large.
