Just saw this in the "about us" section of the Hodgdon website:

"Located in Minden, Louisiana, GOEX Powder, Inc. is the only U.S. manufacturer of black powder. Hodgdon then sold the GOEX plant and brand in 2021."

To whom?

Even though there aren't millions of us who want the stuff, surely to God, they understand the demand?

it might take a while to re-license everything depending upon who
bought it. Must have sold in December and not announced yet
officially. Anyone's guess-- but German Wano or Dupont?
Will the prices stay the same?

Sold- Is music to most ears

I’d bet , prices will not remain same… slight increase. Yet I’m sure 10-15% is not really that big of a deal

I sure hope they don't just shutter/bulldoze/make condos out of any GOEX facilities. Having just one place in the world making black powder, and off shore, is very daunting to the thousands of black powder hunters, target shooters, reenactors that use it constantly over the years. ANY businessman would see this as a wide open market.
