Consumer Price Index, Monthly Change

 

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, “Over the last 12 months, the all-items index increased 1.8 percent before seasonal adjustment. The gasoline index rose sharply in June and accounted for about two thirds of the all items change. Other energy indexes were mixed, with the electricity index rising, but the indexes for natural gas and fuel oil declining. The food index increased in June as the index for food at home turned up after declining in May.”
