More Money Spent in Restaurants than in Groceries this March
According to the Commerce Department, this March, consumer spending was higher in restaurants than in grocery stores for the first time ever. This is especially true for the younger population, since dining out is seen as a social event. This trend could be dangerous, since calorie and portion control is much harder to do away from home. Additionally, alcoholic intake is higher in bars and restaurants than in the home, leading to a wide range of possible health problems in the future.
