I sometimes wonder if it is a back handed attempt to get people to spend more money because now they will have to purchase multiple cups,. bottles whatever. So in a fast food joint, even more people will opt to go thru the drive thru and will not bother with the drinks at all and take their meal home and crack open however many cans of soda they want to drink. Just like everything else, the idiots that have bought their way to the top don't know shyt and it will backfire. Just like the wicked cig tax increases, which led so many to do the roll your own thing at a price per pack that would be equal to about 1990 prices lol. It didn't curb smoking as much and the gov't ended up taking a huge hit twice tax wise, because now they are getting less revenue from business that sells factory packed smokes as well as so much less that is being bought that way. NYS has among the highest in fees for commercial trucking, so companies hire out of state for their shipping needs. NYS loses twice because they are supposedly so clever with their stratospheric taxes and fees.
I am sure most people at one point watched a business go under because they priced themselves out of the market and ended up going belly up. Liberal government does the same exact thing.
