UK disposable income rises across 2015

Pound Coins, UK disposable income rised in 2015.

The Asda Income Tracker has revealed that cheaper petrol and food left households with more disposable income this year. Lower spending on essentials in 2015 meant Britons were able to buy more luxury items and spend more on their homes and gardens. The average UK household had £193 a week of discretionary income in November, up £14 a week on a year earlier and the 13th straight month of double-digit growth in disposable incomes. However, it fell short of the £17 average during the rest of the year.
