Consumer pessimism at highest point of the year
from Convenience Store News
Consumers are more pessimistic about the economy now than they have been all year. However, this time gas prices may not shoulder all the blame for the bleak outlook. For the first time this year, consumer pessimism increased over a 30-day period when gas prices fell. More than 3 in 5 consumers (61 percent) said they are pessimistic, an increase from the 58 percent who said they were pessimistic a month earlier, when gas prices were actually higher.
