Real PCE increased 0.3 percent. … The PCE price index increased 0.1 percent. Excluding food and energy, the PCE price index increased 0.1 percent.

On inflation: The PCE price index increased 0.9 percent year-over-year partially due to the sharp decline in oil prices. The core PCE price index (excluding food and energy) increased 1.6 percent year-over-year in June (same as in May).
