    OMG - 17.99 for a carton!!!!!!

    In NJ - it will cost just a little less than that to buy only 2 packs at a CVS or Walmart!!! Mom & pops charge more. The last pack I bought was in the beginning of January - before the new increase. I paid $7.45 - and they didn't give u matches!!!!!!!!!!

    On a side note - I sure wish everyone would add their live-in-state to their profile. It makes more sense when reading some of the posts, if you know where the person calls 'home'.

    Ha! This is an interesting topic.

    I just remember being near downtown Chicago and going into a gas station. I said "Give me 3 packs of Winston Light Box".

    He handed them over to me, rang them up and said "That will be $32.00 sir". I nearly choked. Needless to say I just got one pack to tide me over till we got back to our burb where cigs are $5-$6 per pack.

    Holy crap!

    During an unexpected layover at O'Hara airport in Chicago I paid $11.50 for a pack of cigarettes and $5.00 for a lighter. This was after having to walk 3 miles from the terminals to the Hilton hotel looked on the other side of the airport property just to find someone that sold them.

    I quit right before the recent tax increase, and was usually paying ~$5 a pack for Camel Crush. I think one of the local 7/11s were trying to get ahead of the game, though; One of the last packs I bought cost me nearly $8.

    $16.00 USD paid at a 7-11 equivalent called Olis in Keflavik, Iceland. I learned real quick to bring plenty with me when I travel now!

    I paid $53.50 for a carton of camel filters, what an idiot I was.

    My buddy works in Syracuse NY. Today he told me it's $70.30 for a carton of marlboros!
    Think for yourself. Question authority.

    $3.75.

    I bought a Top o Matic injector and made my own after the last increase. Even with this latest tax hit, if you get 500 smokes from a pound of bulk tobacco at $50 a lb and $2.75 a box for tubes, it comes to about $2.70 a pack to make your own.

    Making your own still is the most economical way to do analog.

    Edited: Yeah, the recent tax hike added something like $24.00 PER POUND to the price of roll your own tobacco.
