Here is one way to do it. 

Download -levels- from SSC. 

If t is a numeric categorical variable, 

. levels t, local(levels) 

. foreach l of local levels { 
.	graph price quantity if t == `l', saving(g`l') t1(`l') 
.     more 

The -more- is optional. 

If t is string, it is the same apart from 

... if t == "`l'" ... 

There are relevant examples in 
Stata Journal 2(2), 202-222 (2002) 
or at

In addition, some of the technique at
may be useful background.
