"Amer­i­cans are becom­ing less reliant on phys­i­cal cur­ren­cy, reports Pew Research. Rough­ly three-in-ten U.S. adults (29%) say they make no pur­chas­es using cash dur­ing a typ­i­cal week, up slight­ly from 24% in 2015. And the share who say that all or almost all of their week­ly pur­chas­es are made using cash has mod­est­ly decreased, from 24% in 2015 to 18% today, accord­ing to a new Pew Research Cen­ter sur­vey that comes as some busi­ness­es exper­i­ment with becom­ing cash­less estab­lish­ments."
