United States (U.S.) Consumer Sentiment Slumps Much More Than Expected in May; U.S. Import Prices Unchanged as Pullback in Fuel Prices Offset by Higher Non-Fuel Prices

Reflecting broad-based declines, the University of Michigan released a preliminary report showing U.S. consumer sentiment has deteriorated by much more than expected in May. The report showed that the consumer sentiment index tumbled to 59.1 in May from 65.2 in April. With the much bigger than expected decrease, the consumer sentiment index slumped to its lowest level since hitting 55.8 in August of 2011. The report showed the current economic conditions index slid to 63.6 in May from 69.4 in April, dropping to its lowest level since hitting 63.3 in March of 2009. The index of consumer expectations also tumbled to 56.3 in May from 62.5 in April. With regard to inflation, one-year and five-year inflation expectations remained unchanged at 5.4% and 3.0%, respectively. 05/13/2022 - 7:21:00 (RTTNews)

After reporting a sharp increase in U.S. import prices in the previous month, the Labor Department released a report showing imports prices were unexpectedly unchanged in April. The Labor Department said import prices came in flat in April after surging by an upwardly 2.9% in March. Import prices came in unchanged as a significant pullback in prices for fuel imports was offset by an increase in prices for non-fuel imports. The report said prices for fuel imports slumped by 2.4% in April after skyrocketing by 17.3% in March, while non-fuel prices rose by 0.4% in April after jumping by 1.2% in March. The pullback in prices for fuel imports came as lower petroleum prices more than offset higher natural gas prices, although the Labor Department noted import fuel prices were still up by 64.3% year-over-year.

Meanwhile, higher prices for non-fuel industrial supplies and materials, capital goods, foods, feeds, beverages,  and automotive vehicles contributed to the April increase in non-fuel import prices. The report also showed that the annual growth rate in import prices slowed to 12.0% in April from an upwardly 13.0% in March. At the same time, the Labor Department said export prices advanced by 0.6% in April after soaring by a downwardly 4.1% in March. Export prices were expected to increase by 0.7% compared to the 4.5% spike initially reported for the previous month. Prices for agricultural exports jumped by 1.1% in April after surging by 4.3% in March, while prices for non-agricultural exports rose by 0.5% in April after shooting up by 4.1% in March. Export prices in April were up by 18.0% compared to the same month a year ago, reflecting a modest slowdown from the 18.6% spike in March. 05/13/2022 - 09:44:00 (RTTNews)
