Consumer spending and incomes were unexpectedly flat in June, while personal savings scaled their highest level in a year, according to a government report on Tuesday that implied an anemic economic recovery for the remainder of this year.

The Commerce Department said spending was unchanged after rising by a downwardly revised 0.1 percent in May.

Analysts polled by Reuters had expected consumer spending to rise 0.1 percent in June after May's previously reported 0.2 percent increase.
