Cigarette Prices and Cigarette Taxes by State

If you are a smoker, then you are undoubtedly knowledgeable about the variation of cigarette prices in each state. Some states mark cigarettes as expensive while others offer cigarettes at cheaper prices. That is related to the individual tax that is put on cigarettes by each state. Just the federal and state governments put taxes on cigarettes. Then that tax is combined with the local and sales ones. Cigarette taxing in the United States has been existed for many years. Actually, the cigarette producers that manufacture the cigarettes are up in arms against the taxes on this tobacco product. Nevertheless, tobacco companies raise the cigarette prices regardless of the high taxes on them. Health officials support high cigarette taxes as it will reduce the number of smokers. Some smokers just are not set for spending that much money for buying them in local stores, so they buy cigarettes online as quit smoking process is too hard and long.

State Cigarette Tax

Obviously, the cigarette taxes influenced the smoking rate in the United States. Rates on smoking have definitely dropped because of increased taxes. The higher the prices are imposed on cigarettes, the more smokers start using them less. The rate of young smokers appears to decrease considerably. This is most likely because young adults don't really have enough money to buy cigarettes. People with low profit also stop buying cigarettes as prices are too high in convenience stores. Smokers prefer to stop smoking or buy them in online cigarettes stores.

Most people uphold the view that taxes are the reason for high prices on cigarettes. However, reports have proven that the cigarette price has been growing since 1965, but not as a result of the taxes. Actually, the cigarette manufacturers have grown prices, some by as much as a dollar per pack.

Americans purchase around 20 billion cigarette packs yearly. The average retail price of a cigarette pack in the U.S. is $5.51. But the real price of a cig pack to society and to the state's economy is $18.05 for each pack.
