The Current Situation Index, which reflects American consumers' assessments of business and labor market conditions, decreased by 3.9 points to 142.9 in April. The expectations index, which reflects short-term assessments of the future, decreased by 7.6 points to 66.4 in the same period.

Conference Board Chief Economist Dana Peterson reported that consumer confidence fell to its lowest level since July 2022, as consumers were less positive about the current labor market situation and more concerned about future business conditions, job availability and income.
