Americans Take Advantage Of Lower Gas Prices And Tax Refunds To Pay-Off Debt, Cover Everyday Needs -- Finds Allstate/National Journal Poll
Posted on Mar 16, 2015 (11 days ago)
[PR Newswire] - WASHINGTON, March 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Despite lower gas prices and reduced unemployment, most Americans are taking advantage of their savings at the pump to cover basic needs and pay off debt, according to the data released this week by The Allstate Corporation (ALL) and National Journal. Nearly one third of Americans (32 percent) state that the decline in gas prices has had a "huge" or "significant difference" in their personal financial situations, according to Americans polled who benefitted from price savings. The Heartland Monitor poll surveyed Americans' attitudes, expectations, and personal financial situations amidst lower gas prices and as the country approaches the height of tax season. In a positive sign, for the first time in Heartland Monitor's polling since June 2013, Americans are now more likely to say that the national economy will improve over the next twelve months (32 percent) than they are to say it will get worse (25 percent).
