The ISP's costs are still probably about 1GB for maybe $0.01. But this is just simple demand and supply. The demand is increasing and the supply is not. If you are the monopoly and you can control the supply (which they can) then they can dictate the price.
It's not any different than a baseball star limiting the number of signed baseballs he gives to fans every year (say 10) while keeping 10,000 more in his closet.
