What price bus fares?

I am a regular bus user for work purposes, travelling to Cambridge from Huntingdon and back five days a week. In advance of Stagecoach's takeover my weekly multi-bus ticket cost £25. When I asked for my ticket on Monday April 6, I was told it would be £28.

Unless my maths is far worse than I imagined, it would seem I am not getting a cheaper ride, but somewhat being taken for one.
