These States Are Buying the Most Coffee, Fast Food, and Alcohol

Some call them "vices," we call them necessities.

Mainers love their caffeine, Oklahoma residents frequent fast food joints, and the people of Massachusetts are probably down for a good happy hour.

Financial service company Level Money released a national report revealing how millennials spend money on their guilty pleasures (although we don't feel too guilty about them). The findings reveal which states have 18 to 35 year olds purchasing the most coffee, fast food, and alcohol.

Millennials make up a demographic of nearly 75 million people, which represents a pretty strong purchasing power, so maybe this will mean more coffee shops will pop up and alcohol will become cheaper (we can dream).

Here are the key findings:
