Americans cut back on spending in October and saw no growth in their income, reflecting disruptions from Superstorm Sandy. On Friday, Nov. 30, 2012, the Commerce Department said consumer spending dropped 0.2 percent in October. That's down from an increase of 0.8 percent in September and the weakest showing since May. Income was flat in the month following a 0.4 percent rise in September. (AP Photo/Matt Rourke, File)
