Very encouraging! Maybe banks will need to entice deposits with attractive interest rates if this continues.

I personally think people are using their savings to pay for items they used to pay for with higher interest rates.  This time of the year (after the holidays) people may have more bills to pay also. I don't think it will get us higher interest rates very soon though.
