    Australian Consumer Sentiment Plummets Amid Surging Inflation A gauge of Australian consumer sentiment stayed negative for a ninth consecutive month in August as rising inflation and interest rates, coupled with a dour outlook on living costs dented sentiment towards the economy. A survey conducted by Westpac Banking Corp (ASX:WBC) showed its consumer sentiment index fell 3% in August to lows last seen during the COVID pandemic in 2020. The reading comes less than a week after the Australian central bank hiked interest rates, and said it would continue to do so, predicting elevated inflation levels this year.
