Disposable Income, Does it Still Exist? (Infographic)

Call me a curmudgeon if you must, but I found the following infographic overwhelmingly pollyanaish.  Taking a look at the spending increases I see a big direct increase in fuel spending and an apparently large secondary effect of fuel driven inflation.  Couple that with the retail expansion and contraction plans and you’ll see we’re headed in the direction of having convenience and dollar stores on every corner.  Is this progress?
