A new Gallup poll based on self-reported daily spending shows that Americans spent an average of $66 per day in November, up slightly from $63 a day in October.

According to Gallup, spending over the last half of this year has run slightly under 2009 figures and now represents what they consider a “new normal.”

Lower- and middle-income families reportedly spent $56 per day in November, while upper-income Americans spent an average of $120 per day.
