Camel, Kool fans will dig deeper..

September 11, 2007 - Camel, Kool fans will dig deeper.. Reynolds American will raise the prices of Camel, Kool and other cigarettes, helping the company counter a drop in demand that could follow a possible increase in federal tobacco taxes. The price of a pack of Camel will increase 15 cents and Kools will go up 5 cents a pack effective September 17, 2007. Reynolds' moves follow an increase by Philip Morris USA, the maker of top-selling Marlboro cigarettes. (See related Newsbrief: September 7, 2007.) The U.S. retail average for full-price cigarettes was $4.08 a pack in July, 2007. (Raleigh News & Observer)
