November revenue figures out

From the governor's office:
ATLANTA – Governor Sonny Perdue announced today that net revenue collections for the month of November 2007 (FY08) totaled $ 1,409,595,000 compared to $1,278,362,000 for November 2006 (FY07), an increase of $ 131,233,000 or 10.3 percent.

The percentage increase year-to-date for FY08 compared to FY07 is 5.4 percent.

I like looking at this stuff and pretending I know the right way to interpret it. Looking at the more detailed breakdown it looks like things are up across the board, including sales tax revenues. Does that mean holiday shopping is up? Quite possibly, but I am not an economist and I didn't stay in a Holiday Express last night.
