Consumer Attitude Index dips in April
The Zions Bank Utah Consumer Attitude Index dropped 10.9 points in April after a big jump in March, falling to 112.6. However, any number higher than 110 is “typically a bellwether for economic prosperity in Utah,” according to a press release. “Fluctuations in consumer attitudes from month to month are expected, but Utah’s high levels of confidence demonstrate that the state’s economy remains strong,” said Scott Anderson, president and CEO of Zions Bank, in the release. “Utahns can retain confidence that business continues to boom in the Beehive State.”
