The Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U) declined 0.3 percent

in November on a seasonally adjusted basis, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics

reported today. Over the last 12 months, the all items index increased

1.3 percent before seasonal adjustment.


The gasoline index posted its sharpest decline since December 2008 and was the

main cause of the decrease in the seasonally adjusted all items index. The

indexes for fuel oil and natural gas also declined, and the energy index fell

3.8 percent. The food index rose 0.2 percent with major grocery store food

groups mixed.


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

The shelter index rose 0.3 percent, and the indexes for medical care, airline

fares, and alcoholic beverages also rose. In contrast, the indexes for apparel,

used cars and trucks, recreation, household furnishings and operations,

personal care, and new vehicles all declined in November.


The all items index increased 1.3 percent over the last 12 months, a notable

decline from the 1.7 percent figure from the 12 months ending October. The

index for all items less food and energy has increased 1.7 percent over the

last 12 months, compared to 1.8 percent for the 12 months ending October. The

food index has risen 3.2 percent over the span. However, the energy index has

declined 4.8 percent over the past 12 months, with the gasoline and fuel oil

indexes both falling over 10 percent.
