How long till the difficulty starts to drop since the price is not keeping up with difficulty?

difficulty won't drop as long as I continue to double.. nay, treble, my moneys in mere months via Extremely Lucrative Cloud Mining Opportunities

Dacentec, best deals for US dedicated servers. They regularly restock $20-$25 Opterons with 8-16GB RAM & 2x1-2TB HDD's (ofc, usually lots of other good stuff to choose from).  I did a Serverbear benchmark of one of my $20/mo Opteron (June last year), it's here.  Have had about a half dozen different servers with Dacentec, & none have failed to sustain at least 40MB/s (burst higher). My favorite is a 12-month rent-to-own ZT Systems 2XL5520 16GB 2x2TB SATA for $40/month (got lucky with the 'off-brand', haven't seen a RTO 2xL5520 for under $50/mo since -- at least for monthly contracts).  wholesaleinternet.com has some ancient 2-core intel CPUs @ $10/mo sometimes (I got an Intel Core 2 6300 @ 1.86GHz, with a 250GB HDD with 46000 hours on it, LOL. $20 @ Dacentec is much better, if you can grab one). joesdatacenter.com (same location as Wholesale Internet) also occasionally has specials (or if you don't want to wait, it has an AMD Opteron 170 @ $16/mo).

I doubt that difficulty is going to drop, at least not for a very long time. We're currently seeing the beginning of the end of the mining-manufacturer bubble; the companies sit on thousands of chips that they can't sell anymore. I expect a big wave of dying ASIC companies, but till then, the only choice of these companies is to turn to self-mining with their own unsold equipment. ASICminer is an example of that, but I think that the recent rise of DiscusFish's percentage in global mining is all the cheap ASIC manufacturers in China starting to self mine or cooperate with big industrial mines in order to get rid of their pre-produced equipment.

If the difficulty increase like this, soon some giant miner would hit break-even for their electricity...
