The article reports on the continued growth of China-U.S. trade gap. Despite an unexpected drop in the overall U.S. trade gap in March 2006, imports from China continued to grow. Total U.S. imports outstripped exports by $62 billion, down from a revised $65.6 billion in February 2006 largely due to lower oil prices, which went up again in April 2006, and increases in exports with a soft dollar.
