Poll: Consumer confidence surges (AP< 8/06/04)

Americans are apparently feeling better about their pocketbooks.
And they're optimistic about the future, despite the rising price of oil and the renewed terror threat.

The Associated Press-Ipsos consumer confidence index jumped 12 points from July to August. It finds Americans considerably more upbeat about the economy than a year ago. Much of the improvement came during the past month. [...]

The consumer confidence index is based on questions about economic attitudes in a poll of one-thousand-seven adults taken August second through the fourth. The margin of error is plus or minus three percentage points.

Why wouldn't they be?
