Lexington, Ky. – When it comes to Valentine’s Day, there’s no love lost between the annual lovey-dovey holiday and people in Kentucky.
According to data compiled by Finder.com, a personal finance comparison and education site, the average amount people in Kentucky spend on Valentine’s gifts is $36 – perhaps not even enough for a dozen roses (especially considering the holiday mark-up).
The amount is near the bottom in spending nationally. New Hampshire spends the least, at $31, with Vermont, South Dakota, Wyoming, Maine and Delaware tying Kentucky at $36.
The most extravagant spending can be found in Kansas, Nevada, Idaho, Hawaii and North Dakota – those five states spend over $100 on romantic gifts for their partners. Kansas leads the nation in spending at $117.
However, even if Kentucky spending is measly, be happy if you get a gift at all – 37 percent of Americans don’t plan to buy their partner a gift at all.
