[full-text, 39 pages]
Supplemental Files Table of Contents
The Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U) was unchanged in
October 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.
Gasoline and other energy indexes declined, offsetting increases in shelter
and an array of other indexes to leave the seasonally adjusted all items
index unchanged. The gasoline index fell for the fourth month in a row,
declining 3.0 percent, and the indexes for natural gas and fuel oil also
decreased. The food index rose slightly in October, with major grocery
store food groups mixed.
The index for all items less food and energy increased 0.2 percent in
October. Besides the shelter index, airline fares, household furnishings
and operations, medical care, recreation, personal care, tobacco, and new
vehicles were among the indexes that increased. The indexes for used cars
and trucks and for apparel declined in October.
The all items index increased 1.7 percent over the last 12 months, the
same increase as for the 12 months ending September. The index for all
items less food and energy increased 1.8 percent over the span, and the
food index rose 3.1 percent. In contrast, the energy index declined 1.6
percent over the last 12 months.
