First, those are good prices since all pig product prices have increased lately. I just bought a belly for $2.99/lb where it was $2.49 a few months ago. Second, having removed the skin from many a belly, I would gladly pay the extra amount for skinless belly. Unless you have a very sharp knife and patience it is tedious to remove the skin without removing a portion of the valuable fat.
