    The Consumer Sentiment Index (Chart 1) fell in August to 102.4 index points, decreasing by 5.2 points from the previous month. Relative to August 2017, the index decreased by 0.5 index points. While sentiment weakened in terms of current conditions and consumer expectations, lower economic expectations and less appetite towards major household purchases acted as the main driver of the downward revisions.
