NEW YORK (Reuters) – The U.S. economy likely grew at a 2.77 percent annualized pace in the second quarter, a tad slower than the 2.79 percent pace calculated last week following the latest readings on import prices and the consumer price index, the New York Federal Reserve’s Nowcast model showed on Friday.

The New York Fed also scaled back its projection on gross domestic product in the third quarter to 2.64 percent from previous week’s 2.71 percent, according the N.Y. Fed GDP program.
