Consumer credit rose at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of +3.6% in July, for the second consecutive monthly increase after a revised +3.3% increase in June. Revolving credit decreased by -0.4%, but the drop was significantly smaller than either the -30.8% drop in Q2, or the -7.6% drop in Q1. Non-revolving credit grew by +4.8%, slowing from June’s +5.1% rate, with motor vehicle loans in Q2 recovering to a $44.6 billion annual rate, down only -8% from the $48.5 billion rate one year previously.

Wholesale prices grew +0.3% in August, slowing from a +0.6% rate in July, but were down -0.2% for the year.

Overall wholesale goods prices were up +0.1%, with drops in food (-0.4%) and energy prices (-0.1%), balancing out a +0.3% gain in prices for other goods.
