Both personal income and consumption spending were essentially flat in June, according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis. Annualized income grew by just $3.0 billion during the month, the smallest amount since September 2009. Disposable income was also flat in June, rising by just $5.1 billion. Meanwhile, personal consumption actually fell slightly, by $2.9 billion. Some of that difference was plowed into saving, which was up 1.7%.

Savings growth also declined in June. Here's its chart:
