"Consumers must judge the negative impact of higher interest rates to be easily offset by the positive impact of expanding jobs and incomes," said Surveys of Consumers chief economist Richard Curtin in a statement.
"That trade-off accompanied rate hikes in the past, but it has never been undertaken when interest rates have been so low for so long," he said. "Along with other changes in consumer evaluations, consumers are likely to have become more responsive to smaller changes in interest rates."
The gauge of current economic conditions jumped to 107.0 from 105.0 in the previous month.
The consumer expectations index also rose to 88.8 from 85.3 in March.
