U. S. Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U)
The CPI-U increased 0.3 percent in June on a seasonally adjusted basis. In contrast to the broad-based increase last month, the increase was primarily driven by the gasoline index, which rose 3.3 percent and accounted for two-thirds of the all items increase. Other energy indices were mixed, with the electricity index rising, but the indices for natural gas and fuel oil declining. The food index rose slightly. The index for all items less food and energy also rose slightly, increasing 0.1 percent after a 0.3 percent increase in May.
