What a pack of cigarettes costs now, state by state – the awl

This list has been updated, as of August 2014. Click here!

Smokers, flee New York City and head to Kentucky, where a pack of Marlboro Reds will cost you practically a third of what you re paying now. And while you re on the road, steer clear of New Hampshire and Vermont, too the price for a pack has jumped 35% and 25%, respectively, over the past year.

We called a gas station and oftentimes, when we were turned away or simply misunderstood, we called several in the most populous city of every state in the nation and Washington D.C. and asked the clerk for the price of a pack of Marlboro Red cigarettes including tax. (Obviously, local prices will vary some.)

Here s the current price, in bold, and also how the prices of cigarettes have changed since last summer.

  • A sample of comments from our customers

    I would wholeheartedly and enthusiastically recommend purplebox to anyone looking to vape. Owner, Steve, is astoundingly helpful, patient and thorough and was good enough to spend loads of time explaining everything in detail and answering all my first time questions. When I had to come back with a query, he was quick to help and find a solution. The kits are reasonably priced and great value not to mention the “4 for 3” offers on the fluids. After 20 years of smoking and trying unsuccessfully to quit, these e cigarettes have made it so simple I was off cigarettes almost immediately and feel better, (smell better!) and I’ve saved money in the process. A huge thank you to the staff at purplebox from one very happy customer!
