Consumer confidence unchanged from a month ago

By on November 29th, 2011

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.
