(Favstocks) — Use of credit cards is beginning to trail off as more people start preferring to use cash. Fewer people are willing to go into debt and less willing to borrow money for purchases by using a credit card. Card use has been declining for some time, and higher interest rates and fees make credit cards less attractive to the cost conscious. Credit bureau TransUnion has noted a decline in the use of general purpose credit cards, according to Daily Finance. The credit rating bureau asserted in a recently released study that nearly 8 million people quit using a general purpose credit card, the kind normally issued by a bank.
