Coming April 1st and it’s not a joke

If you are still one of those who smoke cigarettes, there will soon be even more incentive to stop.  Effective April 1 the price of cigarettes will go up again.  How much?  Well, the federal government appears to have enough people working on the new pricing.

Work with me on this.  The price of every 5 cigarettes, or fractions of 5 cigarettes contained in a package will increase by $0.60946.  Clear as mud.  Seems to boil down to an extra $2.40 per pack of 20 and an extra $3.00 per pack of 25.

For those of us who continue to smoke, perhaps this will give some an extra incentive to try to stop once and for all.
