Personal consumption expenditures (PCE) is the primary measure of consumer spending on goods and services in the U.S. economy. 1 It accounts for about two-thirds of domestic final spending, and thus it is the primary engine that drives future economic growth. PCE shows how much of the income earned by households is being spent on current consumption as opposed to how much is being saved for future consumption. PCE also provides a comprehensive measure of types of goods and services that are purchased by households. Thus, for example, it shows the portion of spending that is accounted for by discretionary items, such as motor vehicles, or the adjustments that consumers make to changes in prices, such as a sharp run-up in gasoline prices.

Latest Updates

Personal spending in the US rose 1.1% month-over-month in March of 2022, above market expectations for a 0.7% increase and accelerating from an upwardly revised 0.6% gain in February amid higher prices for gasoline and food and stronger demand for services like travel and dining. It reflects an increase of $114.6 billion in spending for services and an increase of $70.4 billion in spending for goods. Within services, increases were widespread across all subcomponents and led by other services (which include international travel) as well as food services and accommodations. Within goods, an increase in nondurable goods (led by gasoline and other energy goods) was partly offset by a decrease in spending on durable goods (led by motor vehicles and parts). The PCE price index jumped by 6.6%, the most since January 1982, while excluding food and energy, prices rose 5.2%, below market expectations.
