On June 17, ContraryInvestor.com had a chart that showed retail sales per capita since 2005. Total retail sales, as depicted, includes autos and gasoline:
Below the Retail Sales Per Capita is a chart of the S&P Retail Sales Index.
Of course, this view of total retail sales, on a per-capita (factoring in population growth) basis, is not one that is often seen. I’ve posted it as I believe that this “per-capita” view is an important one, for many reasons.
