supermarket pricing

I went to Albertsons last night and the checkout lines were long so I went to the self checkout line. The computer tells you the price as you put it through the scanner, which is when I realized that everything ended in 9c. $1.99, 1.19, 2.49, 5.39, 2.79 etc etc.

Just don't understand how they can justify EVERYTHING ending in 9. Surely some items can end in a 7 or an 8 or even a 5. Price gouging or what?
