Nowadays it is. I still remember a time when prices and temperatures were low rather than cheap or cold.

I’ve never heard of this. Prices are either high or low. Please, have you ever heard of expensive prices?
No, I don’t agree.

Is it prices are cheap? It should form like this.

It’s okay. Ngram Viewer gave me many examples. Have a look at the following sentence: “They are responding to what they perceive as expensive or cheap prices.”

(The prices are much lower than those in any other shop there)

YES AND NO.

Yes: You can utter the phrase: “prices are cheap”, in a more casual conversation with people who are not unknown; such as family friends, fellow colleagues, etc. .

No: it is considered rude, improper and slovenly if you utter: “prices are cheap” to a stranger or an unknown person such as: the employee and/or owner. Instead you can say: “the rates/prices are…”: for example: affordable, marked low, discounted, inexpensive, on promotion, marked down to a special rate etc. .
