Consumer confidence unchanged from a month ago

By

Florida’s consumer confidence remains the same this month compared to last month. The Consumer Confidence Index, a survey that asks people how they feel about the economy and buying things, remained at 65 points. University of Florida Survey Director Chris McCarty says while the numbers remained level, they are still low.

McCarty says although people think the current economic situation is poor, they are optimistic for the future.
