Hawaii has 3rd highest credit card debt in US

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) Hawaii residents are carrying the third highest credit card debt in the nation.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported Thursday that the average per capita credit card debt in Hawaii was $8,521 in October.

A year earlier, Hawaii ranked fifth in the nation with an average debt of $8,180.

The figures were compiled by CreditKarma, a California-based credit advocate and credit scoring website.

Hawaii's credit debt last month ranked behind Alaska and Colorado, which recorded averages of $9,128 and $8,741, respectively.

Nationally, the credit card debt average was $7,382.

Meanwhile, the average credit score for Hawaii consumers last month was 674 out of a possible 850.
