How Coke gets customers to pay more for less soda
Philadelphia has actually become the second city in the United States to approve a soda tax. In a final vote of 13-4, the Philadelphia City board on Thursday passed a 1.5-cents-per-ounce tax on sugar-added and synthetically sweetened soft drinks. That would include 18 cents to the expense of a can of soda, $1.08 for a six-pack or $1.02 for a two-liter bottle.
