What a Pack of Cigarettes Costs, in Every State

When I started smoking in 2001, I could collect my quarters and procure a pack of Camels for $2.75. When I quit in January 2015, I paid almost $8.00/pack for Marlboro Reds.

There’s a Hold Steady song that says, “She only pays attention to the prices of cigarettes/she hopes they’ll get cheaper.” I’ve always consider her one of Craig Finn’s most tragic characters. That nicotine fix will just keep getting more and more expensive.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
