Just curious though. What about cigarette prices where I am they are about $5 or $6 I heard in NY you can't buy a pack for less than $12.
Unless you live near an Indian Reservation, the cheapest cigs you can get are like 8 bucks a pack. I buy cartons of Indian made cigs and they are like
2.25 a pack, or 22.50 a carton. The governor is trying to collect taxes from the non-natives buying cigs on native land, but he failed, just like the
past 4 governors. The Natives circumvented this by stopping the sale of name brand cigs. They avoid the taxes and are able to sell the cigs at the
price I mentioned above. As long as they are made on Native soil, no tax.
Oh, and people have already mentioned it, but our brothers and sisters in Canada are paying by the litre, which makes it out to be about 6 bucks a
ETA: I probably should have mentioned that I live in Western NY. The gas price across the street from my house is 3.93/gal. Which is odd, considering
I live 30 minutes from a refinery. Who woulda thunk it?
