U.S. retail sales post second straight gain
Tuesday, 15 May 2018 19:47 WIB | ECONOMY |Ekonomi AS

Sales at U.S. retailers rose in April for the second straight month, adding to evidence the economy has sped up again after a slower start to the year.

Retail sales climbed 0.3% last month following an even larger gain in March than originally reported, the government said Tuesday. March sales were revised to show a 0.8% increase instead of 0.6%.

Economists polled by MarketWatch had forecast 0.3% increase in April sales.

Retail sales also rose 0.3% last month if auto dealers and gasoline stations are omitted.
