    NEW YORK (AP) -- Stock futures rose on growing evidence of resilient spending by consumers and investors expect more of the same later Monday in a government report on businesses.

    Dow Jones industrial average futures jumped 82 points to 12,870 on the retail report and Standard & Poor's 500 index futures rose 7.8 points to 1,372.8. Nasdaq composite futures rose 15 points to 2,708.5.

    Retail sales rose 0.8 percent in March, signaling that not even skyrocketing gas prices could put a damper on the mood of the American consumer.

    Retail sales hit a record high of $411.1 billion, 24 percent higher than the recession low hit in March 2009.

    For the third week in a row, 29% of Likely U.S. Voters say the country is heading in the right direction. The latest finding is from a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey taken the week ending Sunday, April 8, and remains down five points from a recent high of 34% measured in early February.
