According to a recent ABCNEWS/Money magazine poll, consumer confidence remained high this week despite the increase in consumer inflation and last week's stock market volatility. Seventy-four percent of Americans say the economy is in good shape, up two points from last week. Fifty-one percent say it's a good time to spend, a figure which remained unchanged from last week.

Both percentages are six points below January's high. Sixty-eight percent say their finances are in good condition, close to where it's been all year.
