Is Memorial Day Turning Into a Consumer Holiday?
Memorial Day is not about the barbecues or the beer. It's not even about kicking off the summer. We are a free country and that means some men and woman have had to offer the ultimate sacrifice: their lives.
So what are we Americans doing instead of paying tribute to those who gave all? Well, according to Digital Media Solutions, we will be spending at least $48 on gas for travel over the weekend ... along with spending 38% more on hotels, 110% more on amusement parks AND $87 on food per person at the grocery store.
