What a disgrace.

As part of a plan to close a $2.4 billion gap in the two-year budget, Gov. Terry McAuliffe has directed the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control to hike the costs of liquor.

The Commonwealth of Virginia operates a monopoly on the sale of liquor, and the governor (who I didn't vote for) has unilaterally declared that prices be raised across the board. And it is illegal for Virginians to purchase alcohol elsewhere. If a private company tried such a thing, McAuliffe would rightly drag them into court.
