More good news about the US economy:

WASHINGTON - Cash-flush consumers kept shopping counters humming last month, catapulting sales at America's retailers to the highest level in a year.

The Commerce Department reported today that retail sales rose by 1.8 percent in March from the previous month - a much stronger performance than economists were forecasting.

Expect to see an increase in the fed funds rate and some increase in short term rates over the next few months.
