The decrease in the deficit reflects a $2.0 billion decrease in exports and a larger $5.2 billion decrease in imports. Exports decreased to $196.4 billion, mainly driven by a $2.3 billion decrease in capital goods. Imports decreased to $235.4 billion, mainly driven by a $4.6 billion decrease in industrial supplies and materials. To view the full release click here.
