U.S. consumer confidence decreased to a nine-month low in November as accelerating inflation and a pickup in Covid-19 cases weighed on Americans’ views on the economy.

The Conference Board’s index declined to 109.5 from a downwardly revised 111.6 reading in October, according to the group’s report Tuesday. Economists in a Bloomberg survey called for a drop to 110.9.
