According to Cushman & Wakefield Industrial Research:

“An improving job market is one of the driving forces behind a rebound in American consumer confidence, but perhaps the biggest current factor in the consumer confidence boost is the declining price of gas. The pace of job growth accelerated notably in 2014 and the country capped its strongest year for job creation since 1999, while across the country, retail prices for regular grade gasoline reached the lowest levels in four years. U.S. GDP growth is expected to accelerate to at least 3.3% in 2015, and possibly higher, as rising consumer and business confidence leads to faster employment and income growth and stronger increases in spending.”
