How Much Will You Spend on the 4th?

Just when you finally get out of debt from Christmas, now you’ve got to get BACK into debt over Independence Day?

According to a new study, the majority of Utahn’s will spend less than $100 to celebrate the Fourth of July. But one in 10 people will spend over $500, and one in 50 will drop more than $1,000.

And here’s what people say they’re spending the majority of their money on:

1. Food, 54%.

2. Alcohol, 14%.

3. Fireworks, 14%.

4. Travel, 8%.

5. Patriotic items, 2%.

Yes, that means 28% of Americans are putting most of their Independence Day cash into fireworks or booze.

Happy 4th!!

    10am - 2pm | I am the resident radio geek here at BOB. I live, breathe, and eat radio. However, when I’m not on the radio you can find me searching for a local hole-in-the-wall pizza joint, walking the streets of downtown at night in search of fun local music to listen to, going to movies, an occasional trip to Wendover, traveling, exploring, or just chilling at home with my little family. I LOVE talking on the phone! Hit me up on our studio line at 877-807-1007, or on your social media site of choice!
