I don't have much visibility into this, but AWS has been clear about the fact that the operating cost in us-west is higher. Something that may be at play here is that we've seen quite a shift towards larger instance sizes, so it could be that there is excess smallish instance capacity available in east but not in west, since that has been configured much more recently. But this is just speculation.
