U.S. consumers' inflation expectations fall again, NY Fed says (3 min read)

The recent New York Fed’s consumer expectation survey showed inflation expectation slid further in August as gas prices continue to drop. The inflation expectation was at 5.75% over the next 12 months, a decrease from 6.3% in July. In addition, the survey also shows that price increases at 2% over the next five years which is inline with the Fed’s inflation target.
