Don't worry the US fixed it with 25% tariffs. /s

Keep also in mind that us prices are without taxes and European prices include taxes.

There are some exceptions but most of the time there is not a huge price difference. A exception would be for example

The US prices don't include taxes whereas prices in the EU usually include VAT as far as I know. Additionally you have tariffs for imports and other stuff to deal with, shipping and distribution costs, currency conversion, etc. to all take into account as well.

We have VAT (value added tax) in the UK that is applied to all prices, on most sites when you checkout you see the "price" of the product, plus the vat, which gives you the subtitle. 

So what you see as the price on a.uk is what you actually pay, in the US or wherever, you see the price, then you have to add tax onto that
