The U.S. Federal Reserve has announces that consumer borrowing in the United States increased by $16.2 billion in January from the previous month. The total amount of consumer borrowing is now at $2.8 trillion dollars, which is the highest recorded level. Within this category, the student loan and auto loan sectors received a massive $18.3 billion gain in December alone. In January, Social Security taxes rose while take-home (net) pay decreased. notes that this increase in debt is indicative of the rising cost of education and automobiles in the United States. The average college student graduates with debts of more than $150,000. The average cost of a new car in America is $30,000, which is in excess of the average yearly wage.
