Bad news...

Yesterday the congresists approved an increase of 5% on the tax of Sodas, so in 2007 mexican sodas will cost even more... :(

Probably means my Mexican Coke will rise a bit. But I'm only paying $1.25 here in Michigan for the 355 ml bottle. It seems other places charge more from what I've seen on here.

Hey Ramon,

Give us an idea of what soda does cost. It's all well and good that prices will increase, but I do have a feelings it will still be cheaper that it is here in the states. smile.gif

Well, actually a 600 ml Coke costs 6 pesos (60 US cents) but with the raise of the price I think it will be around 6.50 or 7 pesos...

MrR
On average in the Chicago market the price for a 20oz Big Three soda pop is approximately $1.10 to $1.49.

1.39 is the standard price here, if you're lucky you can find 1.29.

Holiday, a big Cstore chain in these parts, has lower tier coke and pepsi products, and ALL CS products for 99 cents however. Since I very rarely buy 20 oz coke, sprite, Pepsi, sierra mist or mountain dew, this is pretty much exclusively where I buy my 20oz pop. Except at work, $1 vending machines!

Guess what...

The senate rejected the proposal of the congresists to increase the tax of the mexican sodas, that means that mexican sodas will maintain its regular prices!... smile.gif

In my area, it's atleast $1.49-$1.69 for a 20oz soda.

I was going to write a very huge, off topic rant, but soda, along with everything else is very expensive, and there are no good paying jobs. I wanted to get a job locally when I graduate from college, but the jobs I can get, pay less than $10 an hour, if that! And an 1 room (not bedroom, just ONE room) apartment is at least $1,200 a month.

FWIW, I live far away from NYC... First off, the economy has been weak in my area for years, and the always expanding military base -- without any regard to the natives and even the military families doesn't help. The jobs coming to the area are service jobs that pay minimum wage, and it's just a disaster. :(

Sorry about the rant, but it'd be nice if soda, along with the cost of living is cheaper, and i'd gladly give soda up if I had to. Tough, but you gotta do, what you gotta do...

David,
Hang in there. I can relate to how you feel.
I ended up taking a mail room job after colledge.
Money was tight. I was not able to afford a car. I had to travel nearly two hours by train each way. I made about $8.50 an hour. I did rent an old apartment that had a roach problem in an high crime neighborhood.

In short I was independent but I hated it!!!!!
I had to turn a blind eye on a lot of things.
I do understand your frustration. smile.gif :D
(For a few years I drank cheap store brands rather than go without soda pop. LOL)

Give up soda pop....are you crazy?!!!!! :D
