In our January 2017 CRL Issue Brief, States without Payday and Car-title Lending Save $5 Billion in Fees Annually, we estimated that consumers in states without payday and car title lending save over $5 billion in fees each year – $2.2 billion in payday fees saved, plus another $2.8 billion in car title fees saved.

In this earlier Issue Brief, we also estimated that consumers in North Carolina save over $457 million in payday and car title fees every year, $255 million in payday fee savings and another $202 million in car title fee savings. Of the 32 states with payday and/or car title fee savings, North Carolina ranks third in savings, behind only New York and Pennsylvania.

In this new report, we estimate how these North Carolina fee savings break out by county and congressional district.
