Regional CPI News Releases



The Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U) was

unchanged in December on a seasonally adjusted basis, the U.S. Bureau

of Labor Statistics reported today. Over the last 12 months, the all

items index increased 1.7 percent before seasonal adjustment.

 The gasoline index declined again in December, but other indexes,

notably food and shelter, increased, resulting in the seasonally

adjusted all items index being unchanged. Gasoline was the only major

energy index to decline; the indexes for natural gas and electricity

both increased.  Within the food category, five of the six major

grocery store food groups increased as the food at home index rose

for the third consecutive month.

 The index for all items less food and energy increased 0.1 percent in

December, the same increase as in November. Besides shelter, the

indexes for airline fares, tobacco, and medical care also increased.

The indexes for recreation, household furnishings and operations, and

used cars and trucks all declined in December.

 The all items index increased 1.7 percent over the last 12 months,

compared to a 1.8 percent figure in November. The index for all items

less food and energy rose 1.9 percent over the last 12 months, the

same figure as last month. The food index has risen 1.8 percent over

the last 12 months, and the energy index has risen 0.5 percent.
