Anyone notice this?

Forever I have been pulling my score andseeing what I can do to improve them.  Forever when it speaks of utilization, the 'Average consumer carries 40% of thir credit card balances'.  My latest FICO scores have updated that number.  It says 'The average consumer carries 36% of their credit card balances'  Looks like consumers are getting smarter making it tougher and tougher to reach that top tierSmiley Very Happy

Probably lots of folks like us who looked at their scores or got ratejacked then got mad and learned everything they could.  The internet is a wonderful thingSmiley Very Happy
