BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) – According to the American Bankers Association, people who use a credit card are more responsible about paying their bills than they have been in more than 22 years.

Delinquencies on bank-issued credit cards — on accounts 30 days or more overdue — fell to 2.4 percent in the first quarter of the year.

That’s the lowest level since 1990.

Delinquencies on car loans and personal loans are down as well.
