Fuels & Transportation


Retail and food services sales excluding motor vehicle and parts rose sequentially despite decrease in total retail and food services sales, by 0.1 % on the seasonally adjusted basis, led by sales increases of gasoline, sporting goods, hobby, book and music. Electronics and appliance stores sales have sunk.
