Quikrete Industry Dashboard
The latest version of the Quikrete Industry Dashboard shows a slow-moving dial for gas prices. The national average for a gallon of regular, according to the American Automobile Association, stands at $2.19 as of Oct. 8. That’s 2 cents lower than a month ago.
Elsewhere on the Dashboard during a relatively quiet week of statistical announcements, share prices of hardware and building supply companies are riding high. All ten companies tracked scored double-digit increases compared to a year ago, with BMC jumping 74%.
Coming soon on the dashboard: Monthly retail sales will be released Friday, Oct. 16.
