WASHINGTON (AP) --Businesses worked off excess stocks of unsold goods in February for the 13th month in a row, potentially setting the stage for ramped-up production in the future.
The Commerce Department reported Monday that unsold goods on shelves and back lots fell by a seasonally adjusted 0.1 percent in February. The drop came even as businesses' sales declined by 0.9 percent.
