People who live in and around the nation’s capital and San Jose are the most confident about the U.S. economy, Gallup said.

The polling company’s Economic Confidence Index said both areas offered a plus-4 rating on the economy, with San Francisco joining them in the net-positive camp at plus-3.

Residents of the Jacksonville, Fla., area had the most dismal outlook, at -25, joined by Pittsburgh at -24 and Oklahoma City at -23.

The results are based on Gallup’s tracking efforts in 2012-2013 in the 50 most populous metropolitan areas of the country.

The index combines ratings of both economic conditions and economic optimism in each region.
