I'm in Louisiana now, which is pretty good. At least, I think it's pretty good, since I'm from New York where they're more than 7 dollars a pack. Here, it's under 4 - about $3.65 or more.

I hear Tennessee has them for even cheaper.

How are they, nationwide?

I've heard of people driving all the way to Kentucky for cartons of cigarettes....though I'm not sure if they are generally cheap or just a lot cheaper than illinois!

They are cheapest on Indian reservations.

No tax of any type placed on them.

I know people who drive to Wyoming to get cigarettes because they are so expensive in South Dakota. Nuts!

$7 a pack?! I don't think I've seen any over $4 here, but I'm sure they exist.

I found them to be much cheaper in North Carolina.
(Bought them in PA, TN and FL....with NC being the cheapest)
But, last time I went to NC (last year), they went up in price there as well.
I think, all the previously "cheap" places will disappear, and make the price/ tax of cigarettes a tool to add finances and support to the government.
It's really coming to the point of it being/ becoming a financial burden and to just take into consideration to just quit....
I'm working on it....AGAIN.

Actually, NC has a pretty good cigarette tax (not like NY though). It's almost $4 a pack. Over the border in SC, they are less than $3 a pack as they haven't had a cig tax increase in a long time. As a former smoker, they aren't worth a penny a pack to me. Big waste of money.

What I used to smoke cost almost $5 here in ohio. Friend of mine talked me into making my own cigarettes. The cost of a machine , tobacco and tubes cost less than one carton of cigarettes. Now I spend about 50 cents a pack. They let you try all the tobacco and see what you like. It is very easy to make. A one pound pack of tobacco makes almost 4 cartons of cigarettes. The cost is only $14.99 plus the tubes @ $2.10 a box of 200. So less than $20.00 you can make almost 4 cartons! I'm sure they have tobacco stores all over. You should check it out. Sure is a lot cheaper for us smokers!!
