Further Signs of Deflation

Not only did retail sales fall in March, but wholesale prices fell as well:

"Meanwhile, the Labor Department reported that wholesale prices plunged 1.2 percent in March as the cost of gasoline, other energy products and food fell sharply."

Business inventories also fell for a sixth straight month, making it the longest stretch of declining inventories in seven years.
