Retail sales increased by 1.1% from July 2009 sales, excluding auto sales (excluding gas sales rose 0.6%). This is higher than the projected 0.4% increase.  This is the highest increase in six months. The cash for clunkers program also generated a jump in auto sales — up nearly 12 percent from July.
