    MEXICO CITY, July 22 (Reuters) - Mexican retail sales
rebounded in May after contracting the prior month, pointing to
an uncertain path for consumer-driven growth in Latin America's
no. 2 economy.
    Mexican retail sales rose 0.2 percent in May
from April, the national statistics agency said on Wednesday.
    Sales increased 4.1 percent in May compared to the same
month a year earlier.
    Mexico's economy grew at its slowest pace in more than a
year during the first quarter.
