Credit Card Stats from the US

Brian posts about "Credit Woes" (US information). Here's one of the interestinmg credit tidbits that's pretty disturbing in his excerpt (which is originally from the Motley Fool):

On average, we carry eight credit cards per person and have a balance of $8,400 in credit card debt.

Scary. Having just got one credit card, I'm already worried! And:

The Commerce Department reports that our personal savings rate is a wafer-thin 1.8%.

I know I'm personally bad at saving, so the above statistic doesn't surprise!
