Why boxed, bottled wine cost the same?*

I am sitting on a Sunday afternoon, relaxing and enjoying a glass of “bottled” wine, much as men enjoy their beer.
I prefer to drink the “boxed” wine because it was more economical and lasts for weeks due to elimination of air intake which causes oxidation and sour taste to wine.
The reduced cost of boxing wine has to do with the costly process of bottling, corking and shipping of the bottled variety. Rectangular boxing is more space efficient re: transport cost as compared to the wasted space internally in a carton of glass bottled wine which is also heavy.
I have travelled to many countries and found that a good boxed wine is considerably cheaper than the comparable bottled wine.
