The third influential factor is time. If the price of cigarettes goes up $2 per pack, a smoker, with very little available substitutes, will most likely continue buying his or her daily cigarettes. This means that tobacco is inelastic because the change in the quantity demand will have been minor with a change in price. However, if that smoker finds that he or she cannot afford to spend the extra $2 per day and begins to kick the habit over a period of time, the price elasticity of

cigarettes for that consumer becomes elastic in the long run.
