You will find that the higher prices are reflected in a different kind of
service. They run it on VMware and your server can migrate to a different
host during maintenance or if a physical host fails. This also means it's
running off a FC SAN.
Most VPS are run off a single server, local disk. If something happens to it
you are down.
You get what you pay for basically. I personally use Linode because my
priorities are cheap then quality. If I was running a business off it, the
extra cost would probably be worth it.
