Shoppers to spend nearly $20B on Valentine's Day
The economy is getting a lot of love from Valentine's Day.
U.S. shoppers are expected to spend almost $20 billion dollars this year on flowers, cards, chocolates, and gifts.
Florists were busy in San Francisco making deliveries. But waiting until the last minute to order a dozen long stemmed roses could set you back over $100.
And on this Valentine's Day, six million people are expected to propose marriage.
