What are you spending?

What are you spending?

This handy pie chart
shows you the breakdown of what Americans spend their money on in 2008 vs. 2007. Drag your mouse over various pieces for more detail.

A few things I noticed: every category in transportation had increased spending except for the purchase of new cars and trucks. Gasoline spending went up 26%, other motor fuel is up 40%, fuel oil for the home up 48%, these are HUGE numbers, especially when most of the other increases are between less than one and 4%.

Also, bicycles are listed as "recreation," not "transportation."
