Expect more fireworks to light up the sky on the Fourth of July this year.
An annual national survey from Visa on Independence Day found that people expected to spend $300 on the holiday, up nearly 60% from last year's $190.
The number of Americans planning to make special purchases to celebrate the Fourth of July is also up. Last year 21% of respondents said they would not spend anything on the holiday; this year it was down to 12%.

Northeasterners will spend an average of $454, Southerners will spend an average of $339, Westerners will spend an average of $206 and Midwesterners will spend an average of $195.
