(Adds comparisons) MEXICO CITY, Nov 23 (Reuters) - Mexican retail sales slipped in September, the national statistics agency said on Monday, pointing to flagging consumer-driven growth in Latin America's No. 2 economy. Sales fell 1.1 percent in September on a monthly basis. Compared with a year ago, retail sales grew 4.9 percent. Steady consumer growth helped underpin the economy this year, which expanded at its fastest pace in two years in the third quarter, despite a slump in oil output.
