I am at work today so I can only post the facts:
The Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U) increased 0.2% in October on a seasonally adjusted basis, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Over the last 12 months, the all items index increased 0.2% before seasonal adjustment.
Non-seasonally adjusted inflation – which is used to adjust the principal balance of Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities and set future interest rates on US Savings I Bonds – decreased a slight 0.04% in October, and was up 0.2% over the last 12 months.
I have updated my Tracking Inflation and I Bonds page to reflect these new numbers.
