Retail sales rebounded in October

ADVANCE MONTHLY SALES

U.S. Economy


U.S. retail sales increased again after dipping in the last month, as a decline in car dealers sales didn't immediately impact total retail sales.
U.S. retail sales increased by 0.3 % to $526.5 billion in October to $526.5 billion on the seasonally adjusted basis, reported by the Commerce Department. Rebound in retail sales is a good news, as the retail sales account for about half of total consumer spending and about a third of final sales in the U.S. economy. Sales advanced by 2.9 % for the year, as the sales excluding motor vehicle and parts increased on the higher rate than total sales over the past 12 months.

Fuels & Transportation

Sales excluding motor vehicle and parts increased sequentially smaller than retail and food services sales by 0.2 % to $420.9 billion on the seasonally adjusted basis.

Some economists prefer core sales over the total retail and food services sales, because they believe it provides a better idea of longer-term retail sales trends.
Over the past 12 months, stripping out the volatile auto sector, the core rate of sales has climbed by 3.1 %.


Sales of essentials continue to grow by higher rate, sale of essentials like groceries and gasoline grew by 0.3 % on the seasonally adjusted basis, as gasoline station sales increased the most, representing 8.17 % of total U.S. retail and food services sales, while food services and drinking places sales fell. Over the last 12 months, sales of essentials soared by 3.2 %.
