This recent study by the Americans for Fairness in Lending says Alaskans have the highest median credit card debt of any state - $3,384 for each person.
New Hampshire came in a distant second with a thousand less at $2,109 in credit card debt. Connecticut at $2,094, and the rest of the top ten were (in order) Maryland, Colorado, Nevada, Virginia, Delaware, Washington and Massachusetts.
The lowest were Mississippi with $1,098, Iowa with $1,135, and West Virginia with $1,237.Alaska leads states in highest credit card debt: Financial News - Yahoo! Finance
And to think those numbers are from 2006 so they are probably higher now!
