Congratulations, everybody! A credit card company has dubbed the Old Pueblo the City Where the Most People Try to Buy Love Most Romantic City. Are you blushing?

Apparently, in the first two weeks of February, spending jumps 68 percent in our city—making us way more romantic than those inconsiderate jerks in Portland whose spending only jumps 15 percent. What are they even thinking?

Here's how Valentine's Day spending breaks down, nationwide.
Biggest spending on Valentine's Gifts:

$52.2 million - flowers
$50 million - jewelry
$38.3 million - apparel
$18.6 million - specialty gifts
$7.2 million - movies
$7.1 million - restaurants
$1.2 million - salons and spas
So, go spend a billion or two on flowers—but don't forget to share your tips on how we can blow more money this week and really secure our place as #1 in America's heart.
