Consumer optimism about the economy continues to inch upward after bottoming out in October 2013, according the latest monthly NACS Consumer Fuels Survey (February 2014).
While the percentage of consumers who say they are optimistic
about the economy remains unchanged from January (43%), more
consumers are very optimistic (9%) — the highest percentage since
July 2013. Younger consumers feel particularly good about the economy: 17% of those ages 18-34 are very optimistic, opposed to only 4%
among those age 50 and older.
Consumers continue to say that gas prices play a role in shaping
economic sentiment: 84% of consumers say that gas prices have an
impact on their feelings about the economy.
