This latest Quikrete Industry Dashboard reveals updates for existing home sales, gas prices, industry stocks.

And the message is mixed, particularly from Wall Street. All 10 stocks tracked, plus the Dow Jones Industrial Average are up double digit percentages compared to a month ago, when the market was rocked by the outbreak of the coronavirus. The market has risen from that low point, but it remains down significantly from a year ago.

Gas prices, as measured by the American Automobile Association, are also down $1.08 per gallon compared to last year.

And finally, the National Association of Realtors reported that existing home sales were down more than 15% in March, compared to February. Still, the March figure is ahead of the 5.21 million pace reported in March 2019.

Next up: Consumer Confidence will be reported on April 28.
