The mood of Americans has improved slightly but remains gloomy this month, as high gasoline prices cause many to consider making significant changes in their lives—including how often they drive, where they go on vacation and how often they dine out, a new Reuters/Zogby poll shows.
The survey shows 58% considering changing driving habits due to high gasoline prices; 60% in favor of domestic oil drilling
The Reuters/Zogby Index, which measures American confidence, has risen slightly to 90.4, from 87.9 in May, and remains just above the all-time low of 87.7 it hit in March. The Reuters/Zogby Index includes 10 poll questions that gauge perception of the state of the country and the economy. The telephone survey of 1,113 likely voters nationwide was conducted June 12-14, 2008. It carries a margin of error of +/- 3.0 percentage points.
