Credit Card Debt Consolidation Debt Relief Popular as Gas Prices Rise

With Prices at the Pump Rising Dramatically, National Debt Relief Program Discusses How Relief Programs Are Helping Many Get Out of Debt

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - March 4, 2011) -  Credit card debt consolidation and debt relief programs have taken on renewed interest today as gas prices continue their dramatic rise in step with middle east tensions. Though there is not much consumers can do to lessen the sticker shock at the pump, there is much that can be done to help lower and eliminate credit card debt.

As of this writing, gas prices have risen 28 cents per gallon in only the last 10 days to a national average of $3.47 per gallon. In California the cost is even higher. The average gallon of gas has risen to $3.84 in the Golden State. During this time of economic uncertainty, many find themselves forced to use plastic to pay for gas to fill up their car, with personal household budgets that are already stretched to the max.

Credit card debt has a way of quickly spiraling out of control if left unchecked. Fortunately, today's debt relief, debt consolidation, and credit counseling providers offer programs, plans and services that can help consumers to lower their debt burden. These programs include loan programs, restructuring programs, and settlement programs.

Credit card debt settlement is a debt relief program that grew popular with the recession affecting so many Americans. This type of program involves a debt relief provider that negotiates on behalf of the consumer in debt with their creditors to settle outstanding accounts for much less than what was originally owed. The savings can be dramatic.

Debt consolidation is a debt relief program that typically involves a loan being taken out to consolidate (pay off) other existing loans and debt. These debt consolidation loans can be of the secured or unsecured variety. Home equity is often used as collateral for a debt consolidation loan.

These and other debt relief programs are today helping millions overcome debt and allowing them the freedom to get on with their lives.
