Inflation eases in May, but still no relief on interest rates
Quick Glance: US inflation cools, hinting at rate cut
  • Inflation in the United States eased in May for a second straight month, signaling that the price increase seen earlier this year may be subsiding. This trend could push the Federal Reserve closer to reducing its benchmark interest rate from a 23-year high.

  • Overall inflation also slowed last month, with consumer prices remaining unchanged from April to May, partly due to significant drops in gasoline, airfare, and new car costs. Compared to a year earlier, consumer prices rose by 3.3%, less than the 3.6% increase from the previous month.

  • The cost of auto insurance, which has surged in recent months, actually decreased from April to May, although it remains over 20% higher than a year ago. Grocery prices stayed flat last month, after a slight decline in April, now only up by 1% from a year ago.

  • Some indicators suggest that inflation will continue to decrease in the upcoming months. Americans, especially lower-income households, are cutting back on spending. As a response, several major retail and restaurant chains, including Walmart, Target, Walgreen’s, McDonald’s, and Burger King, have announced price reductions or promotions.
