Survey: Arizona’s consumer confidence growing

PHOENIX — Arizona consumers were feeling pretty good about the state of the economy, matching confidence numbers from over five years ago.

A Rocky Mountain Poll conducted in January showed the Consumer Confidence Index in Arizona was at 79.1, the best posting since January 2008.

That year the number was 79.8.

The poll found that nearly half of the 701 questioned said they probably would make a major purchase of some kind (car, truck, electronics, kitchen appliance.

Still, more than a quarter of interviewees weren’t expecting the job market to grow over the next few months.
