Why do unfiltered cigarettes cost so much more than unfiltered ones?

I smoke unfiltered Pall Malls, and have for years. I've never understood, though, why with any cigarette that's available filtered or unfiltered (Camel, Lucky Strikes, and Pall Malls are the commonly available ones), the unfiltered version is significantly more expensive, sometimes by a couple of dollars. You'd think that not having to add a filter would make the cigarette cheaper, but that doesn't seem to be the case. Why is this?
