um, I'm not sure whoever wrote this understands what they read.A formerly 2hr flask is now a 1hr flask that you get TWO of (ie: 2hrs worth of flask time) when you make them. If anything, this will change nothing EXCEPT that a 3hr run doesn't waste half your flask, which is how it should have been all along. It's a frequent peeve that when you're flasking up for content, your flask often runs out mid-raid, but the raid only lasts another half-hr or hour and you're forced to choose between chugging potentially expensive elixirs or downing another flask and then putting your character on the shelf for the rest of the day after the raid, or simply wasting the extra hr + on your flask. Neither are great options. One hour flasks, not so bad. Especially if they're being made for the same mats. This means that for our typical 3hr Naxx clears, we can all flask and nobody's going to say "I'm not flasking until after spider" and you won't see anyone's stuff running out right as you get to the horsemen. And then they're grumpy they have to down a flask for 3 bosses that take 45 minutes to kill on a bad day. This is a pretty good change.

I read this the first time when it simply said:"For every set of mats you get 2 flasks instead of one".Under that logic the price changes are correct. The flaw was in the failure to properly retcon the article when the "half-duration" was pointed out.
