Consumer Price Index
The Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U) was unchanged in June on a seasonally adjusted basis the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported. The energy index declined again, falling 1.6 percent. This offset an increase in the index for all items less food and energy. The index for all items less food and energy rose 0.1 percent in June, its third straight such increase.
The all items index rose 1.6 percent for the 12 months ending June. This measure has been declining steadily since February, when it was 2.7 percent.
