The Frontier State may be the largest and most northern state in the U.S., but did you know that those living in Alaska have more credit card debt than any other state?
While home to some of the most unique and diverse wildlife, Alaska’s remote location means the cost of goods, as well as living expenses, run on the higher end. The average single person in Alaska needs to earn about $31,333 to afford to live in Alaska. About $11,000 of that goes toward the cost of housing, while roughly $4,000 goes toward food.
Due to the higher cost of living, the average household in Alaska owes $13,048 in credit card debt. That’s about 13 percent more than residents in Wyoming - the state with the second-highest amount of credit card debt.
