Actually, your statement isn't quite accurate. Normally, when the price of a product is too high, consumers will demand less because they may not see the value in paying a higher price for this product. At the same time, suppliers will be motivated to produce more because of the higher profit they can earn from the high prices. This may result in a surplus rather than a shortage. If the product continues to be priced too high, then the surplus might force the price to eventually decrease via market forces until balance is restored.
