The fixed rate remained at 13.33 percent, also for the third consecutive week.

Beginning this week, retailers now can charge a checkout fee to customers using a credit card under a preliminary settlement between retailers and Visa, MasterCard and major banks. The surcharge allows retailers to recoup the fees they are charged by Visa, MasterCard and the banks for accepting credit cards.
