Free Checking accounts disappearing from regular banks

Free checking is quickly disappearing at the country's largest banks.
According to a survey by bank rate.com, about 72 % of credit unions offer free checking accounts with no strings attached.
   
Only 38 % of big banks are doing the same, according to responses from ten major banks.

That's down from 65 % just four years ago.
Credit unions are still offering the accounts free of charge.
