The list of states whose residents carry the most credit card debt hasn’t changed much in the last few years: Alaska credit card holders consistently carry the highest average balances, and most of the 10 states with high debt are along the East Coast. America’s average credit card debt per person has gone up recently, with most of these states following suit, solidifying their places on the top 10 list.

Data from the Experian-Oliver Wyman Market Intelligence Reports show that the average credit card balance among U.S. cardholders increased slightly to $3,769 in the third quarter of 2014 from $3,734 in the third quarter of 2013. The average was higher in 2012, at $3,782.

Many states’ credit card holders carry average credit card balances of much more than $4,000, including all the states in the top 10. Here they are:

10. Colorado (No. 8 in 2013)
