I expect best sellers and new books will debut at higher prices but the
price will go down after a few months. The back list will have lower
prices.

And if you read a lot, that's fine too. I don't buy many of the newest
books when they come out, usually wait until they've been around a bit
and then get them.

I suspect I won't see a prices increase, or at least not a significant
ones, in the ebooks I usually buy.

You mean the complete opposite of how paper books are priced.

One of the marvels of (effectively) zero cost for inventory, production on
demand and instant delivery is the pricing inversion.
