The European Commission said a flash estimate showed euro zone consumer morale decreased to -7.2 this month from -6.5 in May.

Economists polled by Reuters had expected June euro zone consumer confidence to be at -6.5.

In the European Union as a whole, consumer sentiment fell by 0.7 points to -6.9.
