Prices: Big American Name brands -- all your usual suspects -- cost (2003) less than two dollars a pack. Watch out for the vendors on Revolution Avenue, they CharGe MORE. Go to smaller stores, like the cheap market in the plaza back behind the giant metal arch at 1st, under the tail end of the fake aqueduct. Mexican brands like Montana or Broadway (filtered), Boots (with fake filter paper but no filter), cost less. There are some real cheapies here, folks. And the American brands taste a little different. They're made in Mexico from a different source of tobacco, we think.
Most restaurants and bars still permit cigarette smoking, but if you buy a pack in a bar you will pay almost three dollars for it, buy hey smokes always cost more in a bar on either side of the border, it's just that in Mexico you can still smoke'em right there in the bar.
If you want to buy cigarettes by the carton, expect to pay twelve to fourteen dollars in the more reasonably priced stores (2003). But remember you have to start paying import duty on two cartons or more if you bring them into the United States.
