Valentines Day Spending By State – How Much Does Maine Spend?
Opploans conducted a Google Survey of 2,500, asking how much they intended to spend on Valentines Day, their age, gender, and their state of residence. Using that information, they've given us a breakdown of Valentines Day spending by state.
Kind of a surprise, to me at least, was that New Mexico spends the most on Valentine's Day. The average resident of that state plans to spend about $168 on that special someone!
Other big spenders include Connecticut at $69.00, Missouri at $64.69, and Texas at $61.65.
Where does Maine fall? The complete other end of the spectrum! Maine is the only state (that actually spent money on the holiday) where the average spend was below $10. Respondents in Maine are planning to spend an average of $9.67. So, a gas station rose and a small box of chocolates? Or, a romantic value menu meal at a burger place?
The only states less romantic than Maine were Alaska and North Dakota... Where the average spending was $0.00!
This should probably be a warning to my friends who have a challenging love life. STEP YOUR VALENTINES DAY GAME UP!
