Investing.com -- U.S. consumer confidence grew by more than expected in September, according to a monthly report released on Tuesday, as a fall in gas prices helped assuage worries over the impact of inflation on household budgets.

The reading of the Conference Board's confidence survey for the period rose to 108.0, above economists' expectations of 104.5 and up from 103.6 in August.

"Concerns about inflation dissipated further in September—prompted largely by declining prices at the gas pump—and are now at their lowest level since the start of the year," said Lynn Franco, senior director of economic indicators at The Conference Board.

  •           Be respectful. Even negative opinions can be framed positively and diplomatically. Avoid profanity, slander or personal attacks directed at an author or another user. Racism, sexism and other forms of discrimination will not be tolerated.

  • Use standard writing style. Include punctuation and upper and lower cases. Comments that are written in all caps and contain excessive use of symbols will be removed.

  • Don’t monopolize the conversation. We appreciate passion and conviction, but we also strongly believe in giving everyone a chance to air their point of view. Therefore, in addition to civil interaction, we expect commenters to offer their opinions succinctly and thoughtfully, but not so repeatedly that others are annoyed or offended.

They definitely have a fine line to walk and could easily get it wrong... But, not yet.
