Americans pull out their wallets for 4th of July celebrations

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Independence Day is just around the corner, and it looks like Americans are ready to pull out their wallets to celebrate.

A survey says that more than 150 million people are planning to celebrate the 4th of July by heading to a barbecue, picnic or a cookout.

Independence Day celebrations are estimated to cost over $70.00 per household.

Total spending on food items for July 4th festivities are estimated to be around 6.6 billion dollars.

More than 33 million Americans plan to travel out of town for the holiday, and with gas prices down significantly from a year ago, fewer Americans say gas prices will impact their spending this 4th of July.
