SHOPPING: Shoppers slammed on the brakes in May

In May, retail sales fell for the first time in 11 months. And it was all because of slow car sales. “Total retail sales slipped 0.2 percent,” MSNBC reports. “Excluding autos, retail sales rose 0.3 percent last month.”

JOBS: Survey: CEOs expect hiring, spending to grow

When your owner’s manual says change your car’s oil every 5,000 miles, why should you listen to companies like Jiffy Lube who insists you change it every 3,000 miles? Well, Jiffy Lube has caved. From now on, “franchisees will combine customer information on driving habits and the recommendations from their car’s owner’s manual for types of driving, from light to ‘severe,’ to come up with a specific schedule for that customer,” USA Today reports.
