Those New Hampshire Tobacco Taxes Are Getting Out of Control

Posted By on Wed, Jul 15, 2009 at 10:44 AM

The Associated Press reports that the price of a pack of smokes is getting pretty steep in New Hampshire:

A New Hampshire man says he swiped his debit card at a gas station to buy a pack of cigarettes and was charged over 23 quadrillion dollars.

Josh Muszynski checked his account online a few hours later and saw the 17-digit number — a stunning $23,148,855,308,184,500 (twenty-three quadrillion, one hundred forty-eight trillion, eight hundred fifty-five billion, three hundred eight million, one hundred eighty-four thousand, five hundred dollars).
