Economy remains strong

The economic growth during the first quarter was 3.8%, matching that of the last quarter in 2004. "The final figure outpaced Wall Street economists’ forecasts for a 3.7 percent rate of first-quarter growth and implied the economy had more strength going into the spring than previously thought. Most forecasters say GDP will continue expanding at rates around 3.5 percent in coming quarters, despite some strain from costlier energy prices."
