The basic May deflator of US personal consumer spending was 3.4% year-on-year (an increase of 0.5%).

Household incomes decreased by 2.0% mom, mainly due to separate federal incentive payments in the amount of $ 1,400 received in March - April. The level of household income remains much higher than the pre-pandemic level.

Households have reduced debt and increased cash, checks and term savings deposits by $ 3 trillion since the end of 2019. This could boost spending in the coming months and quarters. A significant increase in income from wages and other private sources. The restoration of jobs and an increase in wages can give a really powerful impetus to the rapidly growing consumer demand.
