The most recent Gallup poll shows that Americans’ confidence in the economy rose to its highest level since Gallup began tracking daily confidence measures in 2008.

Despite a previous score of -25 for the prior week, possibly attributed to rising gas prices, the Economic Confidence Index rose to -18.

Current numbers show another rung reached in the rising trend for economic confidence, which has been ascending for the sixth straight month.

The recent jobless report could have sparked the movement. That report, out last Friday, showed 227,000 jobs were added in February.
