Greetings jason845,

I'm happy to answer your question for you.  I quickly found exactly
what you were looking for at

Here is a link to an Adobe Acrobat document containing all and more
information than you asked for:

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:

My search strategy was to use the following terms: 

retail cigarette pack price USA  


Here's the link for you:

Best of luck!


Here's an interesting item, but it costs!  -  $950 USD
