It's not possible to find a regular expression that works in all
cases. It's in the way regular expressions work that they have to
fail in some circumstances, for example when a target is nested
inside a nested target.
Another way to handle $...$ and \$price is to substitute temporarily \
$ with something that does not exist yet in the text. This can be
something simple like • or some unique string, for example a Welsh
town's Gaelic name ... And it's always a good idea to save the file
before applying changes. Then it's possible to go back to the
unchanged version. Or trying them on a copy.
