One of the first lessons taught in any economics class is the law of supply and demand.
Quality parking spaces are one of those things that are in high demand and low supply.
Add in the high-profile matchup with ticket holders who can likely afford the price, and one lot said that number equals $150.

It’s pocket change given how much people likely paid for tickets just to get in the door.
Still, it’s always somehow jaw-dropping to see three digits for a parking space that’s uncovered in a surface lot. The car should come with its own secret service protection for that price.
Even if the vehicle is parked for say four hours total, that’s still $37.50 per hour, an incredible price for just one game.
