Alcohol tax rate

Year ago alcohol tax rate fell few percent and of course peoples started to buy more alcohol from stores instead of going to buy tax free alcohol from cruises or Russia. Well, now some think that alcohol tax rate should be raise back to where it was because they think that nowadays we drink more alcohol than before changing tax rate. Don't they understand that when that tax rate was higher, most of us buyed alcohol from cruises or somewhere else and now when the tax rate is smaller, instead of going to cruises we buy alcohol from stores.

Well, if they raise the tax rate then we go again to cruises and buy tax free alcohol from there. Is that better?
