Q3 2022 Economic Reports Released

The nation’s gross domestic product (GDP) grew at an annual rate of 2.6% in the third quarter, a reversal from six previous months of decline.  Although the Commerce Department data was better than forecast, there are expectations the economy will weaken under the strain of high inflation and rising interest rates.

There were third-quarter gains in exports, consumer spending, nonresidential fixed investment and local, state and federal government spending. These increases were partly offset by declines in residential fixed investment and private inventory investment.

There were increases in exports of goods and services. Leading contributors to the increase were industrial supplies, petroleum and other nondurable goods and nonautomotive capital goods. There also was improvement in travel and business services.
