New Study Reveals How Bad New Jersey’s Credit Card Debt Is
It has been a rough couple of years in New Jersey. Prices of everything are out of control and seem to be getting higher. Many New Jersey residents are running up some high credit card debt. So our credit card debt must be higher than most other states, right? It makes sense that it would be.
To find out the answer to that question, we turned to the folks at WalletHub, who recently ranked each state in the nation in regards to their credit card debt.
New Jersey is not in the top 5, the top ten, or even the top 15. As a matter of fact, the Garden State doesn't even land in the top half of states in the nation for credit card debt.
You have to go all the way down to the #30 spot in the study to find New Jersey.
As a matter of fact, the Garden State's median credit card debt according to this study is a surprisingly low $2464.
For the record, Alaska has the highest credit card debt numbers in the nation. Their median credit card debt is $3206.
