Subdued festive cheer
WA consumer confidence dropped slightly in the December quarter, breaking the five-year high hot-streak achieved throughout 2018. This is predominantly on the back of surging petrol prices, announcements of tighter lending conditions and rising mortgage interest rates, politicalinstability and mounting household budgetary pressures.
Economic recovery is however continuing and West Australians remain markedly optimistic compared to previous quarters, with the Consumer Confidence Index continuing to trend well above its long-term average.
