Using the global keyword is necessary only when you intend to modify a module-level (aka global) variable within a non-global scope, such as within a class or function. It is unnecessary to call global at the module-level.

Our changes look something like this:

 price = 25
print("hello")
- global price
price = 30

Since the global keyword is intended for use in non-module scopes, using it at the module scope is unnecessary.
