      A Visa survey finds on average, families expect to spend $1,139.00 on prom this year.


      That's up about 40 percent from two years ago, but only a slight increase from last year.


      Families in the Northeast expect to pay the most, while Midwestern families gave the most frugal estimate.


      Visa surveyed more than 1,000 parents of prom-aged teens for the study.


      The survey also found parents will foot about 60 percent of the prom bill, while teens cover about 40 percent.
