If any tobacco company wants to make a killing, keep the prices where they are right now, even including the tax increase. Imagine if Social Smoke stayed at $20 a tin whereas SB would go up to let's say $30 a tin, that would be a HUGE boost in sales for them. HUGE! Not only would that show the consumer that the manufacturer cares about his customers, it would also send a direct message to the competition, saying that the gameface has just come on!
Agreed, it will be up to the manufacturers to keep the price down and i can't see it skyrocketing because all of the different brands still have to compete with one another.
