UPDATE 1-Mexico retail sales fall in Jan for 2nd month in a row

 (Adds background, table)
    MEXICO CITY, March 24 (Reuters) - Mexican retail sales fell
1.1 percent in January from December, dropping for the second
month in a row, the national statistics agency said on Friday.
   Consumer confidence in Latin America's No. 2 economy sank to
a record low in January after a big gasoline price hike and a
slump in the peso to a record low on fears U.S. President Donald
Trump could rip up a free trade deal with Mexico.    
   Sales were up 4.9 percent in January compared to the same
month a year earlier.
