Actually, the situation is quite the opposite. If the price of a product is too low, consumers will likely demand more of it because it's a bargain. However, suppliers may produce less because the low price may not cover their costs or give them a good profit margin. This could create a shortage rather than a surplus. In economics, this is known as the law of supply and demand. For the market to reach equilibrium, the price would typically have to increase to a level where the quantity demanded by consumers equals the quantity that suppliers are willing to produce.
