The trade deficit in the U.S. in June expanded to $49.9 billion -- the highest level since October 2008.

This is compared with forecasts of a $42.1 billion deficit, according to economists surveyed by Bloomberg.

Throughout the month examined, the trade gap climbed $7.9 billion -- the most significant increase since the Department of Commerce began tracking such data in 1992.
