See What People Are Saying On Jan. 11th


Today it’s my turn to grab the forum. As you probably know consumer confidence fell to an all-time low, that’s according to the RBC Cash Index.

They say worries about jobs, energy bills and home foreclosures darkened people's feelings about the country's economic health.

Now, I’m not arguing with that. But, for me the thing that drags down my overall sentiment is the price of gasoline. I hate driving around and watching the numbers creep ever higher. It makes me mad.

And that leads to today's Reader Poll. If gas prices started to come down would you feel more optimistic overall?
