Report Shows Consumers Are Still Spending

According to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, consumers are still spending, showing remarkable resilience. Retail sales rose 0.7% in September, coming off a strong 0.8% increase in August. The strong jobs market and income growth that is on pace with inflation fuels spending. Consumers using credit cards is also up. Big drivers of the gains in September were car sales, online purchases, and sales at miscellaneous retailers. Purchases at restaurants, bars, and gas stations were robust, too.
