Graph of overall changes of consumer spending habits in the United States.

The Wall Street Journal has created a series of graphs showing how the COVID-19 pandemic has altered consumer spending patterns in the United States. One graph shows that spending on events and attractions fell 72 percent by the end of the year whereas spending on groceries  increased by 82 percent in the first quarter of the year. Another graph shows that spending on food-delivery services, such as DoorDash and UberEats, increased by 171 percent in the summer and spending on these services by the end of the year remained 116 percent higher than in 2019.
