Consumer spending watch: Gas prices are down 28% since February's peak and analysts see another 20% drop coming up in the next few months. A rough estimate of the impact of lower gas prices on consumer spending is that a dime drop translates into $13B back into the wallets of consumers. Companies that could see a boost from the trend include Wal-Mart (WMT), Target (TGT), and Costco (COST) - while ETFs such as Consumer Discretionary Select Sector SPDR (XLY), Vanguard Consumer Discretionary (VCR), PowerShares Dynamic Consumer Discretionary (PEZ), and Market Vectors Retail (RTH) could also benefit.
