Big Spenders

Americans really shopped until they dropped ahead of the Christmas holiday, according to a Gallup survey released Dec. 26. Shoppers spent about $119 per day between Dec. 21-23, a spike from $102 between Nov. 27-29. Economists hope the jump in spending will revive a shopping season that was generally described as sluggish compared to past years.
