  • Here in Milwaukee it's bit under or above $6 depending where you go. And I guess they're raising it again. I smoke almost a pack a day, so it adds up. Time to quit. Just trying to get the guts lol.

  • I used to smoke a pack every 2 days - $6 a pack... that adds up to about $1100 a year :)

  • Its cheaper to buy in bulk. You can get a carton for $33.33 of marlboro. But you have to drive across to Louisiana. At the store up the road from me its over 6 for a pack of marlboros. They need to quit raising the prices. Its just not right.

  • I buy cartons at a time. We pay about 100$-120$ a month for 4 cartons - sometimes adding in another 4 packs. That's for 2 smokers.

  • The ridiculous thing is that those who are in the lowest income brackets and on welfare are the ones who waste their money the most on cigarettes and beer. I guess their ignorance is their bliss???

  • I work at a convienant store. All packs are buy 2 save $1.
    Marlboros are $5.41 a pack or $9.73 for 2
    Camels are a penny higher.
    Newports are $5.50 for one and 9.97 for 2
    Pall Mall and Dorals are like $8.50 for 2 packs. Cant remember the rest but they get expensive. Do the math. A lot of people smoke around 1-2 packs a day. for 30 days a month.
