Cigarette prices by state
These are prices for premium brands from our sources:
Dallas, TX: upwards of $5.50
Bronx, NY: $7.45-$9.00, depending on location
Seattle, WA: $5.50-$6.00
We don't see any relief for cigarette smokers any time soon. The Obama administration appears to be attacking cigarette companies with new regulations which will lead to increased prices. Expect cigarette prices to maintain or increase for the rest of 2009.
