ALBANY, GA (WALB) - There is less than a week before the United States celebrates its independence. Many of us celebrate with a bang!

This year companies that sell fireworks are optimistic sales will be strong despite many Americans being cash strapped.

For the fourth year, Phantom Fireworks set up a tent on Dawson Road.

Managers there are hoping to spark some sales.

"We have stuff priced from $1.50 all the way up and several different assortment trays that are the better values, since gas was more expensive last year it should free up a lot of people's money so they can come out and have a better time," said Michael Pearlman, Phantom Fireworks.

Phantom will be selling until midnight on the 4th, and expect more business as the holiday draws closer.
