July 04, 2018


Each year on the 4th of July, Americans celebrate our centuries-old independence with some of our favorite activities; eating and drinking. Our go-to barbecue items for this occasion have remained the same for a long time, but as the US population increases, so does the amount we consume. This year however, our spending takes a slight dip compared to 2017. Total spending for 2018 is projected to be $6.9 billion, compared to last year’s $7.1. Take a look at how our spending breaks down on 4th of July staples like beer, burgers, fireworks and 150 million hot dogs. Happy 4th!
