Greetings jason845, I'm happy to answer your question for you. I quickly found exactly what you were looking for at http://www.tobaccofreekids.org/. Here is a link to an Adobe Acrobat document containing all and more information than you asked for: http://tobaccofreekids.org/research/factsheets/pdf/0099.pdf The information you desire is in the 7th column from the left, called "Retail Price Per Pack With All Taxes". I took the liberty of adding them all up for you to give you the average as you ask. The average price across the 50 states is $3.81 or $3.8066 (I received this figure by adding the prices of all 50 states and then dividing by 50). It also provides you the tax amount per pack by state, the highest costing state ranked through the cheapest state, etc. The above report also references a government CDC website which has a lot of information you may find useful: http://www.cdc.gov/tobacco/statehi/html_2002/state_highlights2002.htm My search strategy was to use the following terms: retail cigarette pack price USA at http://www.vivisimo.com/ Here's the link for you: http://vivisimo.com/search?query=retail+cigarette+pack+price+USA&v%3Asources=MSN%2CNetscape%2CLycos%2CLooksmart%2COverture&x=38&y=15 Best of luck! ``mosquitohawk-ga Here's an interesting item, but it costs! http://www.euromonitor.com/Cigarettes_in_United_States - $950 USD
