Buying one pack of Marlboro – the best-selling cigarette brand in the world for more than 5 decades – doesn’t cost the same price from country to another, or even from state to another in USA.

The price gap between countries for a single pack of 20 cigarettes can be huge, it can even exceed 25$ between Australia and Nigeria.

It is in Australia where cigarettes are the pricier with 38AUD in 2019 ( 22,37€ , 26,20$) a pack, and in Nigeria where cigarettes are the less expensive with 300Niara ( 0,67€, 0,79$) for one pack of cigarettes.

The price of living is not the only reason for this gap, other factors intervene, the most crucial is the strength of the tobacco control programs of the country or the state.
