The Federal Reserve has reported that revolving consumer credit contracted nationally in July but increased at credit unions.
Nationally, the Fed reported that consumers drew down their revolving consumer loan accounts by $3.4 billion in July, moving from $795.9 billion to $792.5 billion. This represents an annual decline of 5.2%, after moving up in May (4.6%) and June (3.9%).
