The Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U) increased 0.2 percent

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

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

before seasonal adjustment.


The seasonally adjusted increase in the all items index was broad-based, with

increases in shelter, energy, and food indexes all contributing. The energy

index rose after a long series of declines, increasing 1.0 percent as the

gasoline index turned up after falling in recent months. The food index,

unchanged last month, also rose in February, though major grocery store food

group indexes were mixed.


The index for all items less food and energy rose 0.2 percent in February, the

same increase as in January. In addition to shelter, the indexes for used cars

and trucks, apparel, new vehicles, tobacco, and airline fares were among those

that increased. The medical care index was unchanged, while the personal care

index declined.


 The all items index was unchanged over the past 12 months, after showing a

 0.1-percent decline for the 12 months ending January. Over the last 12 months

the food index rose 3.0 percent and the index for all items less food and energy

increased 1.7 percent. These increases were offset by an 18.8-percent decline in

the energy index.
