Consumer Mood Index Hits Highest Mark Since September

Now stands at -90, up from -120 a week ago

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Gallup's Consumer Mood Index rose sharply over the last week, to -90 for March 13-15. This is up from -120 a week ago and is the most positive the Index has been since mid-September 2008. The increase is commensurate with the four-day consecutive gains in the Dow Jones Industrial Average, beginning last Tuesday, and also with the Obama administration's recent emphasis on more positive views of the economy.


Gallup's Consumer Mood Index is the net positive of Gallup's Economic Conditions and Economic Outlook measures, both based on Gallup Poll Daily tracking.
