We’ll miss you, money.
The New York Times reports the U.S. Treasury did not print any $10 bills. Why bother? Most people are using credit and debit cards for daily expenses.
But it’s also a testament to the “staying power” of the bills. Production of paper currency is declining much more quickly than actual currency use because the bills are lasting longer, according to the Times.
Thanks to technological advances, the average dollar bill now circulates for 40 months, up from 18 months two decades ago.
