PriorActual
Level51.3 49.7 

Highlights
Erasing a month of steady incremental gains, the consumer comfort index fell 1.6 points in the March 26 week to 49.7. The week included the administration's unsuccessful efforts to repeal Obamacare. The nearly 50 level, though, still points to unusual strength in consumer confidence.
