The charges for the same goods may be inflated in some remote areas because things are hard to obtain there.

Does charges sound right here? Should I replace it with prices/costs? Thanks.

    Thanks, LRV.
    Are charges and costs wrong here?
    No, they are not wrong. Depends upon context.

    In a remote region, there may be charges and costs associated with importing an object that are on top of the price that it cost.

    If you wish to buy something on eBay, you will pay the price, but there will also be charges for shipping which you must pay.

    In the context of remote regions, the charges/costs for completing the transaction are almost always going to be high, and above and beyond what the price would normally be for the product.
