I know this post is a little off topic. Here are three examples of why men spend more money than women.
1. Higher Grocery Bills - According to a 2004 US Department of Agriculture study single men spend an average of $60 a week on food, single women spend $50 a week. Therefore it costs $520 more a year being a single man.
2.More Debt - According to FreeCreditReport.com men have more $1468 more in credit card and installment debt than women. If the average rate on that debt was 12%, men would pay $176.16 more a year interest.
3.More miles driven. - According to a 2001 US Department of Transportation survey men under 65 drive an average of 10.9 more miles per day than women under 65. If you use the 2006 IRS automobile reimbursement rate of 44.5 cents per mile, it costs $1770.25 more a year for men under 65 to drive than it costs women under 65.
