Why are empty vials about 1 or 2 gold each but vials of water about 46 gold each?  Is there any reason one cannot just buy x amount of empty vials, go to a water fountain in the GE fill up those x amount of empty vials and then sell them for that much of a profit?

also I noticed that things in the NPC stores are cheaper than the ones  in the GE.  Why is that the case?

Because the time it'd take someone to go fill vials or whatever isnt worth saving a little bit of gp.

You might be able to fill 1k vial of water in about an hour so that's about 44k gp/hr, not really worth it so people just buy them if they need the vials of water and not unf's

Is it better to make unf potions than to fill empty vials?

Yes, unf potions are definitely going to make more in absolute gp profit.
